Hey all you Internet Explorer 9 users out there, how would you like to learn a quick trick so that every time you start IE, it runs in Private mode right from the get-go? It’s easy, so follow along!
What we’re going to do is create a desktop shortcut for IE and set a switch to make it start in InPrivate mode. So, right-click on your desktop, select New and choose Shortcut.
Now, if you’re using a 32 bit version of Windows, copy this text and put it in the path box:
“C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” -private
For those out there running 64 bit windows, you have to change it a bit. Use this line:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” -private
Notice that in both cases we put -private after the quoted path.
When you’re done, hit Next, give your shortcut a name and you’re good to go.
Remember: if you get an error while inputting this path, you might have a different version of windows and should try the other path.
