How to Always Start Microsoft Edge in InPrivate Mode

    If you use InPrivate Mode all the time in Microsoft Edge, you can always start Edge in InPrivate Mode all of the time.

    Before we get started, remember that InPrivate mode requires the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, not the classic Edge.

    There are several ways to do this but I am only listing one of them here as I find this to be realy easy and and you can use it seperate from normal mode.

    You can start InPrivate Mode as needed by pressing Ctrl+Shift+N, or by clicking on the three dots in the top right corner and clicking on New InPrivate window.

    Right-click on your Microsoft Edge shortcut and click Properties.
    (press the Windows key and search for “Egde”, right click and chose “Open Path”)

    Scroll to the end of the Target field and add -inprivate at the end after the quotes.

    Add -inprivate

    If prompted to provide administrator permission, click Continue.

    That allows you to create a second shortcut and have Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Edge InPrivate side-by-side without having to modify the Properties repeatedly. You can do the same by creating shortcuts to websites that you want to open in InPrivate Mode.
