How to activate Internet Explorer private-browsing mode by default

You will need to add a command-line option to your Internet Explorer shortcuts to activate InPrivate Browsing by default.

Locate the shortcut you use to launch Internet Explorer, right-click it, and select Properties. On Windows 7 or 8, right-click the Internet Explorer icon on your taskbar, right-click Internet Explorer, and select Properties.

Add -private to the end of the Target box (that’s a space, one dash, and then the word private). Click OK.
