    How to Create Google Chrome Guest Mode Shortcut in Windows


    While browsing in Guest mode in Google Chrome, you won't see or change any other Chrome profile's info. When you exit Guest mode, your browsing activity is deleted from the computer.

    Guest mode is ideal for:
    • Letting others borrow your computer, or borrowing someone else’s computer.
    • Using a public computer, like one at a library or cafe.
    Guest mode stops Chrome from saving your browsing activity.

    Your activity might still be visible to:
    • Websites you visit, including the ads and resources used on those sites
    • Your employer, school, or whoever runs the network you’re using
    • Your internet service provider
    If you sign in to an account to use a web service (like Gmail) while in Guest mode, your browsing activity might be saved on sites that recognize that account.

    If there's a supervised user on your computer, Guest mode isn't available when all non-supervised profiles are locked.

    If you want to browse privately on your own computer, use Incognito mode. You'll see your info and settings without saving any browsing history.


    This tutorial will show you how to create a shortcut that will always open Google Chrome in Guest mode in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    problem uninstalling google chrome

    Hi,

    Since you already uninstalled Google Chrome using the Programs and Features, Google notifications may still be running in the background processes. We suggest that you follow these steps on how to end the Google Chrome process:

    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
    • Select Task Manager.
    • Under Processes, locate Google Notifications or Google Chrome.
    • Right click on them and select End Task.
    • Double check under Programs and Features if Google Chrome is completely gone.

    Let us know if these steps worked.

  4. Create Google Chrome Guest Mode Shortcut in Windows

    Public Computer Chrome Private vs. Guest Mode

    So I was on a public computer today and went to gmail and I always use Private Mode and in addition I restart the computer when I am done. Today was the first time I saw an option to browse in Guest mode as opposed to private mode.

    https://support.google.com/chrome/an...sktop&hl=en-GB

    Open Guest mode

    1. On your computer, open Chrome.
    2. At the top right, click the button with a name or People

      .
    3. Click Guest.

    I noticed that the People icon is not available in Private mode but only when I open up a regular browser window. So on a public computer which offers more privacy selecting private mode or guest mode. I use a public computer every day for an hour or so and this was the first time I saw that option. TIA.

    Please answer these questions for us:

    1. Was there any changes made on the computer prior to the issue?
    2. Are you able to see other notification icons?
    3. Have you tested the issue on a different user account?
    Please try this step and let us know:

    As you have already tried enabling the settings in Google Chrome and Windows 10, I would suggest you to create a new user account by following the

    link
    and test the issue.

    Note- The notification icon will be missing if you access the Google Chrome in Incognito mode. Please access the browser in normal mode.
