If you are concerned about your privacy online or worried about your family members of other people who share same computer with you monitoring your activities online, then you must enable private browsing.
Private browsing allows surfing the internet without storing any data on your browser. Your browsing history or cache is deleted once you close the browser.
Every browser has a private mode but the problem is that we often forget to enable private browsing when we go online. So today I want to share with you how you can permanently set browsers in private mode for fast incognito browsing.
To make sure you never forget to browse incognito again, use this tip to modify your desktop icon’s target location to bring you straight into an incognito session on your Windows PC.
If you are Chrome lover and love to browse with Google Chrome, you can permanently set your Chrome browser in private mode for fast incognito browsing by changing the icon’s target location in very simple steps.
1. Right-click on the Chrome icon on your desktop and select “Properties”

Add “-incognito” to the end so it appears as
“C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –incognito
3. Click on Apply and OK to close the preference.
