How to Creat Shortcuts for Incognito Browsing on IE/Firefox/Chrome/Opera

Posted by Britt Duncan - July 29, 2014

For many users, browsing history remains a kind of private informaion that they prefer not to be shared or accessed by anyone else but themselves, especially when one is on a public used computer. But, it is rather troublesome to clean all the records when one is done. Even, sometimes you may forget to do so and leak some essential information to others. However, the incognito browsing method, which enbles you surf online without leaving any track, is certainly the best way to resolve the problems arise above. In the following part, this post will details how to creat shortcuts to incognito browsing on your browser. Thus, you won’t have to go through any trouble to browse anonymously.

Step one: Right click on the Internet Explorer/Firefox/Chrome/Opera icon, which will trigger off a menu. Select Properties from the list.

chrome-firefox-properties-1

Step two: At the popping up dialogue box, move to Shortcut tab. For the four different browsers, the configuration window should look similar to each other.

Step three: Under Shortcut tab, locate Target field, where the location of the browser will be listed. For IE/Firefox/Opera users, all we need to do is to change the location by adding -private in the end. Then click OK. For Google Chrome users, instead of adding -private, append -incognito and then hit OK to confirm the change.

Step four: Thus, next time you click on the shortcut, you will go directly into the private mode of the browser and won’t keep any tracks after you exit the browser.
