    Hi @Brink

    Is there any trick to use "InPrivate Window" as default browser? (clicking on external links or URLs shortcut on "Desktop" open in "InPrivate Window" as default instead of "New Window")
    Hey mate,

    You could use an option below to force Microsoft Edge to always open in InPrivate mode.

    Enable, Disable, or Force InPrivate Mode in Microsoft Edge Chromium

    SendTo shortcut to open URLs in Edge Chromium InPrivate


    I have set up Edge Chromium shortcuts in SendTo -

    - If I select a url file then chose any of these SendTo shortcuts, the link opens in Edge [normal, InPrivate or GuestMode as chosen].
    - If the selected file is not a url then no action is taken.

    Browser - Edge - InPrivate shortcut in SendTo folder - This points to OpenUrlInEdge-InPrivate.vbs which contains
    Code:
     Set wshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
     PassedURL = WScript.Arguments.Item(0)
     Set oShellLink = wshShell.CreateShortcut(PassedURL)
     URLTarget = oShellLink.TargetPath
     If Right(PassedURL, 3)="url" Then WshShell.Run chr(34) & "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe" & Chr(34) & " /c start msedge " & " -inprivate " & URLTarget, 0

    So, I can now do what I wanted which is to use IE/Firefox for routine work with the ability to easily choose to open a url shortcut in Edge instead.

    This post is one part of a set of three posts about using a SendTo shortcut to open URLs in Edge Chromium
