If you have a new session created on the MicrosoftWebDriver server, you can follow this tutorial to load a Web page in the session using the "POST /session/{id}/url" service:

1. Enter the following Python script to load a Web page in an existing session. Remember to copy the session ID from the output of the previous tutorial.

C:\fyicenter> type PostSessionUrlEdge.py

# PostSessionUrlEdge.py
# Copyright (c) FYIcenter.com 
import requests

data = """
{"url": "http://sqa.fyicenter.com"}
    """
	
id = "936A2C88-D144-49B9-B11E-F455816E7D3A"
res = requests.post("http://localhost:17556/session/"+id+"/url", data)
print("Status: " + str(res.status_code))
print("Body: " + str(res.content))

res = requests.get("http://localhost:17556/session/"+id+"/url")
print("Status: " + str(res.status_code))
print("Body: " + str(res.content))

5. Run the Python script:

C:\fyicenter> python PostSessionUrlEdge.py

Status: 200
Body: b'{"sessionId":"936A2C88-D144-49B9-B11E-F455816E7D3A",
   "status":0,"value":null}'

Status: 200
Body: b'{"sessionId":"936A2C88-D144-49B9-B11E-F455816E7D3A",
   "status":0,"value":"http://sqa.fyicenter.com/"}'

You should see that the Web page loaded properly in the browser.
