This isn’t surely an effortless process since Google has provided no official method or settings for opening Incognito mode on Chrome as the default tab. Instead, we are going to do some really crazy techy stuff here that will set Google Chrome to open Incognito mode forever.
The instructions provided in this article are surprisingly easy to understand, no matter how much prior knowledge you possess about computer technology. All you have to do is stick to our guidance in this article.
So what’s the wait? Let’s get in…
Why Put Incognito Mode as Default Tab on Chrome?
By default, the Google Chrome web browser keeps a tab on you. It tracks everything you do on the internet from searching random phrases to browsing private sites that might be inappropriate for others to see. You might don’t want to let other people know what sites you browse, such as social media, even though you are officially not old enough.
On Incognito mode, it gets too easy for you to browse anything and visit any site without getting your online activities tracked in History. When you use Incognito mode on Chrome to browse the internet, it is not tracked in the History section of your browser, so nobody sees what you browse.
However, opening Incognito mode every time when you browse could be exhausting. You may want to know a feature that allows you to always open incognito mode on Google Chrome. This will also allow you to avoid the chances of accidentally using the general tab that could be fatal.
Hence some users need this thing to always open without any manual interactions.
Here’s How to Always Open Google Chrome Incognito Mode
Follow these simple and easy to understand instructions to make this happen:
On your computer, press the Windows + D key at the same time to make sure that you are on the home screen.
Now press the right click on Google Chrome’s shortcut icon located on the desktop.
If the Chrome icon is not there on your desktop, just find it in the Start menu and make a right-click on it.
Then, press on Properties.
The Properties window should show up on the screen.
Then, click on the Shortcut tab from the upper menu.
Now find the “Target” text box, which already has a file directory address.
The “Target” dialogue box has to stuff something like this:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe”
Once you find it, click on its text.
Now make sure you don’t change anything to it mistakenly.
Ensure to keep your typing cursor at the end of the text.
Now hit the Spacebar key on your keyboard at once.
Then put in “-incognito” using your keyboard.
Make sure that it appears like this:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –incognito.
Once that is done, make sure to press the Apply button on the bottom.
Then hit the Ok button to keep the changes.
Now all your settings are saved safely, and your job has been done successfully. From the next time on, whenever you will click the Chrome icon, it opens the Incognito mode automatically rather than opening the general tab.
From now on, you can carelessly browse anything without taking anxieties.
That’s how it goes…
