Most of the activity performed whilst navigating around the net, Is stored (to some degree) In your web browser, such as websites visited, login Information, cookies and more. If you have multiple users sharing your computer, you'd certainly want to prevent access to such data. Wouldn't It be great, If you could run Google Chrome In Guest mode as a temporary browser for other users? In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a Google Chrome Guest mode shortcut on your desktop.
So what exactly Is Guest mode In Google Chrome? Without the tech jargon and simply stated, It's a raw (blank) profile that's completely separated from the main Google Chrome browser. In other words, It runs as part of Google Chrome, but cannot see the browsing history, nor change any settings of the main browser. Moreover, when you exit Guest mode, all browsing activity Is deleted.
As mentioned above, It comes to very good use when sharing your PC with other users. Another advantage, Is that you can use It on a public computer at a cafe or library, without having to worry about other people accessing your browsing activity.
Depending on the version of Google Chrome, accessing Guest mode can be a somewhat arduous task, hence I will demonstrate how to create a shortcut on your desktop, thereby It's readily available with a double-click of the mouse. So without further ado, let's get this tutorial started.
Step One:Firstly, navigate to your desktop, right-click on a blank area and select New > Shortcut as shown below.
Step Two:Next, In the Type the location of the Item field, enter either of the following commands, based on the architecture of your Windows 10 operating system.
Enter this for 32-bit (x86):
Or this for 64-bit (x64):
In my case, I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit, so I've entered the 64-bit command (right above this), as Illustrated In the Image below. When you've made your selection, hit Next to continue.
