The instructions floating around are to place the
switch (single - works fine for me) in your desktop shortcut. But sometimes you may be in an application like Tweek Deck, etc that links to webpages. These pages don’t launch in incognito if you only fix your desktop shortcut. Here is how to do both. Google Chrome is set as the default browser in this case.
(These instructions are based off of Windows XP)
Right-click on your Chrome shortcut. Choose Properties
. Add -incognito
to the end:
To launch all web shortcuts and links from your system:
Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types
Select the File Type URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol
and choose Advanced
Select action open and edit.
Just like before add the switch to the end like this:
chrome.exe" --incognito -- "%1"
