Windows 7: Question regarding InPrivate Browsing

Question regarding InPrivate Browsing

Maybe a dumb question but I'd like to know how this works. When I stream videos from Youtube obviously it is temporarily downloaded into the Temporary Internet Files folder. When InPrivate Browsing is enabled no files etc. are saved in the Temporary Internet Files Folder, so how can the video still load? You still see the bar loading. I thought all streamed stuff had to go somewhere on your hardrive.

Thanks.

Hello Templar,

While you are surfing using InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer stores some information, such as cookies and temporary Internet files, so that the webpages you visit will work correctly. However, at the end of your InPrivate Browsing session, this information is discarded.

The tutorial below can give you more details about all of this though.

Hope this helps,
