Sometimes you just want to pop the browser open for a quick web search without reloading all your saved tabs; read on as we show a fellow reader how to make a quick private-browsing shortcut.
It would seem that there is a simpler way to bring the Incognito window into play. Right click the Chrome icon in the Taskbar. The popup box shows an option to open in Incognito mode. It's already there for you to use.
By the way, the changed icon shown in the How-To Geek article is the official Chrome Canary icon (it's three shades of yellow). Yes, you probably knew this, but we're just pointing it out to avoid any confusion which may arise with some readers.
If you right click the Firefox taskbar icon, there is an option to open a "New Private Window". Of course, you need to have pinned Firefox to your taskbar.
This can also be done with different profiles instead of private browsing.
To those mentioning the icon, this is not applicable to the question. They don't want to leave the game and go to the desktop to then right click the icon. They want to launch it from the game with a shortcut.
This can also be done in Linux and OSX but the process is different. If anyone wants the Linux method just reply here and I will write a tutorial about it.
Either you are a spammer or completely lack the ability to read the question.
