    How to: Open New InPrivate Browsing Window in Microsoft Edge

    Open New InPrivate Browsing Window in Microsoft Edge [​IMG]
    Information Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    Microsoft Edge has an InPrivate browsing feature. When you use InPrivate tabs, your browsing data (like cookies, history, or temporary files) isn't stored on your PC after you're done. Microsoft Edge deletes temporary data from your PC after all of your InPrivate tabs are closed.

    This tutorial will show you how to open a new InPrivate browsing window in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

    Note Starting with Pin to Taskbar option is now grayed out for InPrivate sessions in Microsoft Edge. Websites pinned to the taskbar from an InPrivate session on a previous build will now open in a regular (non-InPrivate) Microsoft Edge session.

    EXAMPLE: Microsoft Edge InPrivate Browsing

    2. Press the Ctrl+Shift+P keys.

    OR

    3. Click/tap on the More actions button, and click/tap on New InPrivate window. (see screenshot below)

    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.

    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. However, at the end of your InPrivate
    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.

    Let us know the status.

    Hello Andy, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I have the same issue in build 10162, and sent feedback to Microsoft about it.

    Please upvote it, or send feedback as well to help make sure Microsoft is aware so it'll be fixed. *Smile

    Just after submitting my question I pinned and or closed all tabs that I had open in Edge and Chrome. I then ran Disk Cleanup and deleted all System Files then ran a Defrag. Opened a fresh Edge Window in attempting to open New InPrivate Window. Needless to day that feature was still grayed out.

    Will keep you updated as to my progress.

    Note In Windows 10 build 17074, when users try to create a Microsoft Edge InPrivate window from inside a Mixed Reality headset, a regular window will get created instead. Users won’t be able to use InPrivate inside Mixed Reality in this build. InPrivate on desktop is not affected.
