How to always open Chrome in Incognito Mode on Windows [Guide]

Chrome’s “Incognito Mode” is quite popular for users who do not wish to keep a record of their browsing activities. While this mode of web browsing may not completely make you anonymous, it’s quite useful especially if you want to log-in to same site under two different accounts or browse the web without the annoying add-ons (extensions).

Speaking of which, did you know that you can quickly launch your Chrome browser’s incognito window from your desktop? Well, almost everyone knows how to quickly shift to incognito mode via the “Ctrl + Shift + N” keyboard shortcut, but with a desktop shortcut, you can totally bypass your Chrome browser’s normal window.

Anyways, let’s skip the dilly dallies. Just read past the break to learn how.

If you want, you can even keep two Chrome shortcut icons on your desktop – one for the normal window and one for Incognito. It’s as easy as that.
