Open a link in Private Browsing


I want to open any link that i have in IE 11 in Private Browsing mode.

Ideally not have to set PC to always use Private Browsing.

Something like a right click, "Open in new windows in Private"

Thanks Terry

I would look into using something like chrome. You can right click a lick and choose to open in private. I don't know if you can do that with IE.

You can create a context menu shortcut for yourself:
Open Registry Editor by Start --> Run, type in regedit and enter to go
In HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IE.AssocFile.URL\shell, create new Key:  InPrivate
In new HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IE.AssocFile.URL\shell\InPrivate key, set (Default) value to Open link in private mode
In new HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IE.AssocFile.URL\shell\InPrivate key, create sub Key: Command
In new HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\IE.AssocFile.URL\shell\InPrivate\Command key, set (Default) value to iexplore.exe -private %1

Click the gear at top right of IE window|Safety and then InPrivate Browsing.  Your Favorites, etc. will work just fine, but you probably will have to login at every site requiring log in.
You can keep that window open as long as you want and (also) use regular IE as you wish.
