How to Enable or Disable InPrivate Browsing on Microsoft Edge

In this post, you’ll see two different ways to disable InPrivate browsing on the Edge browser. Pick the one you like.

In this instance, I’m using Windows 11 PC. Let’s start.

How to Disable Microsoft Edge InPrivate Browsing using Local Group Policy Editor

Launch local group policy editor.

Navigate to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge.

Then double-click “Configure InPrivate mode availability” in the right pane.

Select Enabled.

From the drop-down list, choose InPrivate mode disabled.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

Note: To enable InPrivate browsing on Microsoft Edge, follow the steps above but choose Not Configured.

How to Disable Microsoft Edge InPrivate Browsing using Registry Editor

Open the Registry Editor. Before proceeding, I recommend backing up your Registry.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Edge.

If you don’t see the Edge key mentioned above, you need to create it, and here’s how: Right-click on the Microsoft key and select New > Key. Type Edge and then press Enter key.

Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.

Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Press the Enter key after typing InPrivateModeAvailability.

Double-click it and then provide 1 in the Value data field.

Hit the OK button.

That’s it.

Note: Delete the DWORD you created earlier to enable InPrivate browsing.
