Always Open A Website In Private Browsing


If you're the type of user who wishes to browse the Internet without having to worry about your history being saved In your web browser, and also prefer not to store cookies, Images or cache web pages, then private browsing Is your answer. Wouldn't It be nice, If you could access It with a double-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to always open a website of your choice In private browsing.


So what exactly Is private browsing? In very simple terms, It's privacy within your web browser, whereby once you've finished navigating online, your browsing history, cookies, keywords entered etc, are discarded when you close your browser session.

Notice how I've emphasized privacy within your web browser? That's because, private browsing does not anonymize you online! In other words, It prevents Information from being stored on your computer, but what you do beyond your computer, can still be tracked.

Private browsing Is extremely useful If you don't want other users knowing your browsing activity and If you use It on a daily basis, you'd want It available at your fingertips. As such, I will show you how to open any website of your choice In private browsing, by creating a shortcut on your computer's desktop.

The web browser that this Is relative to, Is Firefox so If you don't have It Installed, now Is the time to do It via their official website. The process Is extremely simple, so without further ado, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

Firstly, navigate to your computer's desktop, right-click on a blank area and select New > Shortcut as shown below.


Step Two:

Next, assuming Firefox Is located In the default Installation directory (C:\Program Files, If not use the Browse button to navigate to It), enter the following command In the Type the location of the Item field.
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window Your URL

Replace Your URL, with the website that you want to open In private browsing. For example, I want this blog to execute In private browsing, so my command looks like this.
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window https://www.windows10tips.com

When you've finished entering yours, hit Next to move forward.


Step Three:

Now you need to give your shortcut a name. It can be anything you like, but I suggest naming It to something associated with the website of your choice. I've accordingly entered Windows 10 Tips Private Window. Click Finish to finalize the process.


Step Four:

I've now navigated to my computer's desktop and as you can see, my Firefox private browsing shortcut has been successfully created. Let's make sure It's functional, by double-clicking It.


Step Five:

As expected and as you can see, my Windows 10 Tips blog has loaded In Firefox's private browsing. I can now navigate online and the moment I close my session, my cookies, history etc, will be discarded.


Last Step:

To demonstrate that the session Is In fact In private browsing, I've simply opened another tab. Clearly, you can see that It's running In a private window.



Final Thoughts:

Whilst It's not that difficult at all, to access private browsing within Firefox Itself, nothing beats the simplicity of a double-click of the mouse. You can create as many shortcuts as you like, with all your favorite websites that you want to execute In private browsing, thus have them available at your fingertips at all times.
