Similar to the way you enable Firefox browser to always start in Private browsing mode, you can always have the Google Chrome browser to start in what is called the Incognito mode. The Incognito window mode in Google chrome browser allows users to browse the web privately.
This mode of browsing comes is very handy if you have a shared computer at your home or workplace and you do not want other users of your computer to know your browsing data. In one of our previous posts, we guided you on how to use the Incognito window mode. But, this allows you to browse the web privately if and only if you enable it manually through the Tools Menu.
But, however it may happen sometimes that you forgot to switch into the Incognito mode and browsed the web in the normal mode. This will let your browsing details visible to other users of your computer. So, in order to avoid this situation, you can always have your Google Chrome browser start in the Incognito window mode. The following How-to section explains the procedure
1) Right click on the Google Chrome shortcut icon present on your desktop and then click on Properties from the context menu.
2) In the Google Chrome Properties window thus opened, under the Shortcut tab, inside the target box, change the target location of your chrome browser to the following
NOTE: - the target location may differ from on user to other user. In our illustration, the target folder where the chrome browser is installed is “E”. In your case, you might have most probably installed the Chrome browser in folder “C”. So, change the location from E to C accordingly.
Also remember that, the quotes start at E and ends at chrome.exe and not at incognito.
3) Once you have specified the path, click on Apply and then on OK.
4) Now, double click on the chrome icon present on the desktop and you can see that the browser opens in the Incognito window mode directly.
Tip: you can use two shortcut icons for your chrome browser (one for the incognito mode and the other one for the normal mode). For example, right click on the normal chrome icon present on the desktop and create another replica of it by clicking on the Send to Desktop (Create shortcut) option from the context menu. Then right click on this new shortcut icon and enter the above mentioned path inside the target box and click on Apply and then on OK to apply the changes.
