How to Open InPrivate Window and New Tabs in Edge Computer?

Learn how to open the InPrivate window and new tabs in Microsoft Edge on a computer desktop. You can open a new window and multiple incognito tabs in it.

Have you ever used a shared computer or used a friend’s laptop and thought what if my account was still signed-in? Or is it safe to login? Yes, I often have this thought in my mind every time I use a shared computer. Especially, during the time I used a public cyber cafe.

Thankfully, I do not worry about it anymore since the feature of private browsing or incognito mode started to exist. Almost every latest browser supports private browsing mode so does the Microsoft Edge Chromium.

Microsoft Edge offers this feature called an InPrivate mode window which is nothing but a private browsing window. The InPrivate browsing does not save any kind of information such as browsing history, passwords, cookies, cache storage, etc. and delete every detail on exiting the browser sessions.

A few days back, I was using my roommate’s laptop for some important work. After I finished, I had to manually delete all the data including the browsing history, cache, etc. It took up a lot of my time and effort. Just then, I decided that I will find an easier alternative to this.

When you’re done using the shared or someone else’s personal computer, all you need is to exit the private browsing mode.

Just select the tab and drag with the mouse cursor outside of the tabs bar. This will create a new window out of the existing tab.
