How to Go Incognito on Internet Explorer

By Kevin Lee

You might not be able to prevent your Internet Service Provider from knowing the sites you visit, but you can keep Internet Explorer from remembering them. Using IE’s InPrivate browsing mode, you can surf the Web, view online videos, and then exit the browser without leaving a trace of your activity on your computer. This type of browsing is also useful if you share a computer with others or don’t want IE to store temporary and permanent information on your hard drive.

Step 1

Launch Internet Explorer.

Step 2

Press "Ctrl-Shift-P" to open a new tab in InPrivate browsing mode.

Surf the Web as you normally do. Internet Explorer will not store cookies, temporary files or browsing history.
