    How to Open a New InPrivate window in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    Microsoft Edge has an InPrivate browsing feature. When you use InPrivate tabs, your browsing data (like cookies, history, or temporary files) isn't stored on your PC after you're done. Microsoft Edge deletes temporary data from your PC after all of your InPrivate tabs are closed.

    This tutorial will show you how to open a new InPrivate browsing window in Microsoft Edge for your account in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    Starting with Windows 10 build 16241, the Pin to Taskbar option is now grayed out for InPrivate sessions in Microsoft Edge. Websites pinned to the taskbar from an InPrivate session on a previous build will now open in a regular (non-InPrivate) Microsoft Edge session.

    Hello Andy, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I have the same issue in build 10162, and sent feedback to Microsoft about it.

    Please upvote it, or send feedback as well to help make sure Microsoft is aware so it'll be fixed.

    Just after submitting my question I pinned and or closed all tabs that I had open in Edge and Chrome. I then ran Disk Cleanup and deleted all System Files then ran a Defrag. Opened a fresh Edge Window in attempting to open New InPrivate Window. Needless to day that feature was still grayed out.

    Will keep you updated as to my progress.
