Windows 10: CMD launch microft-edge in private mode to google search string syntax

    CMD launch microft-edge in private mode to google search string syntax


    I really am stuck

    I have a search string of "kent local car hire" I want to echo that to the Microsoft-edge browser with that search string

    entered into the browser in google search.


    start micrsoft-edge: Google

    -private


    Reason behind all of this is that I need to write a script to search for certain strings in private mode on google to check

    absolute ranking for keywords for my website.

    So I wanted to fire each long tail keyword indervidually in private mode from the CMD to check this.

    then I will just replicate the line or put a if else endif kinda statement in if thats the same in CMD as CSH KSH c etc

    If you peeps can shed any light on this I would me more than greatful

    Cheers all

    However, you cannot launch the Edge browser in the InPrivate browsing mode through the command line. This is because the Edge browser is a Metro app and does not really support command line parameters like its predecessor does.

    Is there a way to direct a search string into the launched google webpage
    like

    echo "cars" > https://www.google.co.uk

    or | pipe

    https://www.google.co.uk | echo "car"

    Cheers

    I guess you could experiment with autohotkey- it's very good at manipulating windows, so if you could identify a way of directing the string to the appropriate field, that could work.

    Somewhat as the example cited above.

    When you launch a browser, the address field is the active one and also provides a search function, so simply sending the characters would probably work.

    This is easy with Firefox:
