    How to Open New InPrivate Browsing Window in Microsoft Edge Chromium


    Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

    The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

    When you use InPrivate browsing or guest mode, Microsoft Edge collects some info about how you use the browser depending on your Windows diagnostic data setting or Microsoft Edge privacy settings, but automatic suggestions are turned off and info about websites you visit is not collected. Microsoft Edge will delete your browsing history, cookies, and site data, as well as passwords, addresses, and form data when you close all InPrivate windows.

    Other people using this device wonít see your browsing activity but your school, workplace, and internet service provider might still be able to access this data.

    InPrivate browsing does:
    • Clear browsing history, download history, cookies and other site data, cached images and files, passwords, autofill form data, site permissions and hosted app data when you close all InPrivate windows
    • Save your favorites and downloaded files, so you can access them next time you use Microsoft Edge
    • Allow you to access favorites, passwords, and form fill data from the profile used to open the InPrivate window
    • Allow extensions youíve given permission to run while browsing InPrivate

    Microsoft Edge canít prevent extensions from saving your browsing history while browsing InPrivate.

    Webpages such as edge://settings, edge://favorites, and edge://history canít be viewed in an InPrivate window. Opening these pages when browsing InPrivate will open them in a normal browsing window.

    InPrivate browsing does not:
    • Associate your browsing history with a Microsoft account or use this data for product improvement
    • Save new passwords, addresses, and info filled in online forms
    • Allow you to re-open recently closed tabs and windows from Settings and more Ö > History > Recently closed.

    Am I safer while browsing InPrivate?
    InPrivate browsing doesnít keep you safer from malicious websites or provide additional ad blocking. Websites can still personalize content for you during your InPrivate browsing session because cookies and other site permissions arenít deleted until you close all InPrivate windows. To help prevent websites from personalizing content and ads for you, switch your level of tracking prevention to Strict in Microsoft Edge or go to Settings and more Ö > Settings > Site permissions > Cookies and site data and turn on Block third-party cookies. This might cause some sites to behave unexpectedly.

    When is InPrivate browsing unavailable?
    Children with activity reporting or web filtering enabled through their family group canít browse InPrivate. Organizations, like schools or workplaces, can use group policy to prevent people from browsing InPrivate.

    Hello Mr @Brink

    Before I read this post I thought Microsoft Edge has no "New InPrivate Window" option on Windows Taskbar Right Click!
    I was googling to find how to add this option in Windows 10 (add "New InPrivate Window" on Windows Taskbar).

    By "Right Click" and "Shift+Right Click" just have these options (SS below).
    [Win 10 v1909 Build 18363.592 x64, Microsoft Edge Chromium v79.0.309.71 (Official build)]

    This is what I see when I just right click on the Microsoft Edge Chromium icon on the taskbar.

    @Brink

    The problem was in Windows Settings. Just enable "Show recently..." option in "Start" section in Windows "Settings"...

    Turn On or Off Recent Items and Frequent Places in Windows 10

    Interesting. You wouldn't think that would have affected "Tasks" in the jump list.

    I've noticed that sometimes it may take a random amount of time for the tasks to show up.

    Hello @timofort ,
    @Brink is right! It would take an amount of time to be shown! I disabled that option (in Settings) to see if it would disappear ("New InPrivate..." option) from right click or not, and after about one week .... the "New InPrivate Window" decided to be hidden!!...

    "GPUpdate /force" command may be helpful.
