Always start Microsoft Edge Browser in InPrivate Browsing mode

 The Microsoft Edge Browser can be set to always start automatically in the so-called InPrivate Browsing Mode, i.e. the Incognito Mode. This is advantageous if a computer is used by several people at the same time.


What is the InPrivate mode?

InPrivate stands for the incognito mode in the Microsoft Edge Browser, which deletes your local browser history and the cookies when you close all browser windows. However, InPrivate does not prevent your activities from being tracked over the Internet.

The next time you open Edge using the shortcut, the application will launch in InPrivate mode.
