Private Browsing with Microsoft Edge

Ask a question
Like most web browsers, Microsoft Edge possesses a private browsing mode (InPrivate), which allows users to browse the web without leaving traces of their activity.

How does the InPrivate Mode work?

Private browsing happens in a special browsing window. You can connect to the websites of your selection, sign-in to your social profiles, view videos, download and even open new browser tabs in the InPrivate window. Closing the InPrivate window will delete all browsing data, including your browsing history, temporary Internet files, cookies, form data, user names and passwords:

How to Enable the InPrivate Mode?

You can enable the InPrivate Mode by clicking on the More actions menu of Microsoft Edge and then on New Private Window:


You can also use the CTRL + SHIFT + P keyboard shortcut to open the InPrivate window.
