Private browsing allows you to browse on Internet without leaving any traces in the computer you are using. When you use private browsing in a browser, it doesn't store the websites you visit, files you download, forms you fill, your searches, etc. It's very useful when you are using a public computer.

Private browsing mode doesn't offer complete privacy, but it does prevent your browser from saving your history, searches, cookies, and other private data between browsing sessions. You can have your browser always start in private-browsing mode if you prefer it. Read the following guide to learn how to always start your browser in private browsing mode.

1. Always Start Google Chrome in Private Browsing Mode

Pages you view in private browsing window won't appear in your browser history or search history, and they won't leave other traces, like cookies, on your computer after you close all open windows. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be preserved, however. Note that private browsing feature is also known with a few other names such as "Incognito mode" in Google Chrome.

  • Right-click on Google Chrome's shortcut and select Properties.
  • Now add –incognito at the end of the string present in Target text box as shown in following screenshot:

    There must be a blank space between existing string and –incognito.

Click on Apply button and now whenever you'll launch Google Chrome using this shortcut, it'll always start in incognito mode.

2. Always Start Internet Explorer in Private Browsing Mode
