After doing automatically upgrade from Destkop Explorer whose version is 188.8.131.52 and earlier, Desktop Explorer is automatically launched and cannot capture Chrome properly.

Note: if you want Desktop Explorer to capture Chrome precisely, please also install qTest Explorer Extension for Chrome.
