Google Chrome Incognito Shortcut

If you're like me, the typical tin-foil hat IT nerd next door- I'm willing to bet that you also enjoy your private browser sessions via Google's very own Chrome browser.

Yes! Google Chrome Incognito offers the additional peace of mind knowing that your browser history, cookies, etc are not stored or tracked. I use Incognito 95% of the time, simply because I don't like being cookied to death by amazon and ebay, so naturally I like to have Incognito mode open up by default.

This is quite simple to do actually, and could save your HOURS of time collectively by taking a moment to learn how!

Step 1: Right click your Google Chrome Shortcut on your desktop > Then select Properties.

Step 2: In the Target field append "--incognito" (remove "") to the end. Click Apply.

That's all there is to it! Your new shortcut will default to Google Incognito mode everytime you launch it. You can also create copies of the shortcut, and save one as 'Incognito" and one as regular Google Chrome if you prefer to have the option.
