    How to Open an Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing window in Windows 7

       Information
    InPrivate Browsing enables you to surf the web without leaving a trail in Internet Explorer. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing where you visited and what you looked at on the web. This will show you how to open a Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing window in Windows 7.

       Note
    When you start InPrivate Browsing, Internet Explorer opens a new browser window. The protection that InPrivate Browsing provides is only in effect during the time that you use that window. You can open as many tabs as you want in that window, and they will all be protected by InPrivate Browsing. However, if you open another Internet Explorer browser window, that window will not be protected by InPrivate Browsing. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, close the browser window.

    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 following table describes which information InPrivate Browsing discards when you close the browser and how it is affected during your browsing session:




       Tip
    InPrivate doesn't clear any history or information about toolbars or browser extensions that is stored on your computer. To help protect your privacy, Internet Explorer disables all toolbars and extensions by default in an InPrivate Browsing window. You can still manually enable a toolbar or extension if you like though.


       Warning

    • InPrivate Browsing does not prevent someone on your network, such as a network administrator or hacker, from seeing where you went.
    • InPrivate Browsing does not necessarily provide you with anonymity on the Internet. That means that websites might be able to identify you through your web address, and anything you do or enter on a website can be recorded by that website.
    • Any favorites or feeds that you add while using InPrivate Browsing are not going to be removed when you close your InPrivate Browsing session. Changes to Internet Explorer settings, such as adding a new home page, are also retained after you close your InPrivate Browsing session.

    EXAMPLE: Internet Explorer InPrivate Browsing Window
    NOTE: This is the default window you will see when you open a InPrivate Browsing window. Notice how you will have a InPrivate indicator to the left of the address bar to let you know that you have InPrivate Browsing turned on.
