 In the context of selenium, here is the answer given of how you can do it in a Python programming language by using the selenium with javascript execution:-

From selenium import webdriver
From import By
From import WebDriverWait
From import expected_conditions as EC
From selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
# Initialize the WebDriver (e.g., Chrome)
Driver = webdriver.Chrome()
# Navigate to the webpage with the dropdown menu
# Find the dropdown element using its ID or other selector
Dropdown = driver.find_element(By.ID, “dropdownId”)
# Scroll the dropdown element into view using JavaScript
Driver.execute_script(“arguments[0].scrollIntoView(true);”, dropdown)
# Wait until the dropdown is visible and clickable
WebDriverWait(driver, 10).until(EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.ID, “dropdownId”)))
# Click on the dropdown to open it
# Select an option from the dropdown (e.g., by index or text)
Option_to_select = driver.find_element(By.XPATH, “//option[contains(text(), ‘Option Text’)]”)
# Continue with your testing or verification steps
