  1. InPrivate Browsing not opening


    I open up Edge and when I go to click on InPrivate Browsing it does nothing. I asked my friend and he said it opened right up. I can't find anything on it. Using the Ctrl+Shift+P isn't doing anything either.

    In addition, Chrome is missing incognito mode. Hotkey not working and the button to open incognito is missing. Just before I updated to windows 10, Chrome's incognito mode and internet explorer's InPrivate Browsing worked.

    I've looked around the internet and reinstalling, but no luck. Is there a way to fix this?

    Edit: I figured it out, I had to remove myself from the family group on the Microsoft website

    :)

  2. Can't Post Photos to Facebook from IE (and Edge)

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I suggest you to check if the issue persist in InPrivate Browsing.
    If the issue does not persist, I suggest you to follow the above steps and check.

    When you start InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer opens a new browser window. The protection that InPrivate Browsing provides is only in effect during the time that you use that window. You can open as many
    tabs as you want in that window, and they will all be protected by InPrivate Browsing. However, if you open another Internet Explorer browser window, that window will not be protected by InPrivate Browsing. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, close the
    browser window.

    1. Open the desktop Internet Explorer, press the
    Ctrl+Shift+P keys

    2. A new Internet Explorer window will now open with InPrivate turned on. You can now browse to whatever site you like in InPrivate mode.

    3. To turn off InPrivate, you would just need to close the IE InPrivate window.



    Let us know the status.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to check if you are facing the same issue in InPrivate Browsing.

    InPrivate Browsing enables you to surf the web without leaving a trail in Internet Explorer. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing what sites you visited and what you looked at on the web.
    You can start InPrivate Browsing from the New Tab page or the Safety button.

    When you start InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer opens a new browser window. The protection that InPrivate Browsing provides is in effect only during the time that you use that window. You can open as many tabs as you want
    in that window, and they will all be protected by InPrivate Browsing. However, if you open another browser window, that window will not be protected by InPrivate Browsing. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, close the browser window.While
    you are surfing the web using InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer stores some information—such as cookies and temporary Internet files—so the webpages you visit will work correctly.

    Browsing session, this information is discarded.

    Follow the below steps.

    In Microsoft Edge:

    • Open the Microsoft Edge app.
    • Press the Ctrl+Shift+P keys.

    In Internet Explorer.

    • Open the Internet Explorer.
    • Press the Ctrl+Shift+P keys.
