It would be nice if someone knows how to select the checkbox using Selenium with Python.

from selenium import webdriver

from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys

browser = webdriver.Firefox()

url = 'any url'


browser.find_element_by_id("15 Minute Stream Flow Data: USGS (FIFE)").click()

I want to select the checkbox corresponding to 15 Minute Stream Flow Data: USGS (FIFE.

I tried as id, name, link_text but could not detect what should be used?

One way you can find elements' attributes is using the Google Chrome Developer Tools:
