GUI Testing is a type of software testing that checks the Graphical User Interface of the Software. The intention of Graphical User Interface (GUI) Testing is to make sure the functionalities of software application work as per requirement specifications by checking screens like menus, buttons, icons, etc.

The questions that come to your mind will be
Why do we do GUI testing?
Is it really required?
Does testing of functionality and logic of the Application not more than sufficient?? Then why do we waste time on UI testing?
To answer the above question, think as an end user, not as a software tester. A user doesn’t have any knowledge about the Application. It is the UI of the Application which concludes whether a user is going to use the Application or not.
A User first observes the design and looks of the Application and how easy it is for the user to understand the UI. If a user is not comfortable with the Interface or finds the Application difficult to understand he would never use that Application Again. Therefore, GUI is a matter of concern, and correct testing should be carried out to make sure that GUI is free of Bugs.
