Edge records history InPrivate mode

Q: Edge records history InPrivate mode

Is there a way to disable this?
Recording history in an "InPrivate" window seems like a contradiction in terms, no?

Preferred Solution: Edge records history InPrivate mode

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Edge records history InPrivate mode

Well, that is rather interesting observation.

Did you observe that during your browsing or after you're done? Please post the screen!

After the latest update which supposedly fix the InPrivate cache problem, it actually got worse. If you browse anything in InPrivate, the browsing history actually shows up in the regular session.

You can try:

Open EdgeOpen an InPrivate window side by sideDo some browsing in InPrivateNow go back to the regular window and check the history (1st button on the right -> 3rd clock tab), InPrivate browsing history shows up in there.

I've managed to reproduce this both on my tablet and my desktop.

EDIT: I'm running 10586.104.

A:FYI: Edge InPrivate now RETAINS and SHOW history as well.

What I I need is a reliable method of opening a website using EDGE 'InPrivate' Mode. It would have been nice to have a simple single command-line method but apparently this cannot be done.

On a system with a brand new install of Windows 10 that has been in use for only a few days (The only change being to make Chrome the default Browser) I can get the suggested "Microsoft-edge:" to work from Win+R but not from CLI so not sure how to accomplish this from a script.

I was able to get Chrome to open a specific website using Incognito Mode from a single line command but have had no luck at all using Edge. The last post I could find was on a Microsoft forum and perhaps indicates that there is no way to accomplish this.

Failing a simple method , is there any way to create a script in batch,PS or VBS that would accomplish the same thing?

I thought I would try the new InPrivate function this evening and as I typed www.... a whole list of previously typed urls appeared below the address box. I asked my son about this and they were sites he had visited previously. Fortunately they were all "okay" (-;

But... he said that he had run two "cleaners" (CCleaner and East-Tec) as well as used the IE8 "delete browsing history". But... the typed in URLs remained even after a restart. Don't ask me why he uses those programs but whatever - they failed to clear the url history.

Anyone any ideas about this?

Another doubt I have is:

I have a form to register applicants data. In it, there are the fields:

Candidate Address

and with the Candidate_Id filled in, it opens other tables concerning Professional Experiences, Literary Abilities and other Abilities.
What I need to know is how can I get to know if any of these data (including address, other abilities and others) been altered and how to list that. OR how to present a report or something of the last change for all the candidates.

Thank you

A:Keeping history of records

That is a pretty common issue with small databases that become more and more important...

Depending on how detailed you need to be, you could narrow it down to one to two fields: a date field to note the date of changes, and a text field that could indicate which information changed.

Bottom line is that it is something you have to create yourself.

At work I need to use a web application that only runs on internet explorer, and doesn't support tabbed browsing, so if I opened a new tab it could log me off, or just not function properly.
One of the features in that application is to display reports of the different tasks and projects in it. The reports are opened in a pop-up window, and it always uses that same window for all the
To override the application's 1 tab restriction, I also open it in an InPrivate browsing window, in addition to the one I have opened in normal mode.
My problem is with viewing the reports in the different modes [normal/inprivate].. I used to be able to view them in separate pop-up windows, one launched in normal browsing mode, and another in
inprivate mode. I got a new computer a few months ago, now running Windows7 professional, and IE 11 [version 11.0.9600.18230]. I'm not sure if I had IE10 or IE11 on my old computer. Now when I open the first report, it opens a new pop-up window in the same
browsing mode, and when I go to the other browsing mode and open a report from it, it will also be opened in the same pop-up window. I tried to play with IE settings, took screenshots from my old computer and tried to have the same settings, but to no avail.

My Facebook chat/inboxes don't show up at all when I'm browsing normally in Google Chrome, but when I'm in Incognito mode they work perfectly. I assume this has something to do with cookies or something similar. Just wondering how I can fix this?

A:Facebook PM's only working in Google Chrome Incognito/InPrivate mode?

I suppose you want to clear your cookies. It wouldn't hurt to clear the cache at the same time.

To clear the cache in Google Chrome
* Click on the spanner in the top right corner.
* Click Tools.
* Click the menu entry "Clear Browsing Data"
* Change the dropdown to "everything"
* Ensure that "Empty the cache" is checked.
* In this case, we also need to ensure that "Delete Cookies ..." is checked.
* Click the button "Clear Browsing Data".

I noticed this problem only this morning when I saw that my Carbonite back-up was not working. After chatting with one of their support techs, we determined that something is wrong with my Internet Explorer 11. I normally never use IE, so I had not noticed. But, since Carbonite apparently needs IE in order to work, this is why Carbonite wasn't backing up.

So here is what happens with IE11...when I click on it (either the shortcut or the exe file), it opens but everything is white. I am going to try to insert a screen cap here:

Entering a URL does nothing and it stays on the same white page. Tapping "Alt" does not bring up the menu bar either. But when I go into InPrivate mode, I can at least get it to show some sites. As a test, I entered Yahoo and while it came up, there were no images. Like this:

Other websites came up okay, such as Facebook.
I tried to install a new IE11, but got an error that it was already there. I tried a couple different methods of uninstalling IE that I found in various tech sites but none worked. When I did a restart, it got hung up on the shutting down screen (over half an hour). I did a hard reboot and got a screen to wait for Updating Windows, which gave me hope it may have uninstalled, but it did not and the problem remains.

By the way, I downloaded the SysInfo and when I click on it, nothing happens...not sure why or if it is related to the problems? Any questions or information needed help me troubleshoot this, please ... Read more

When I try to clear Internet History in Edge browser, I get the following message: "Some data couldn't be cleared. Please try again.". This is happening on 2 pc's and "trying again" does not clear. The item not being cleared is Browsing History, I have determined by process of elimination.

I have run SFC, DISM, Disk Cleanup, Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, MRT, and CCleaner and the Systems are clean and indicating no problems. In searching the Internet, I have found some posts regarding the problem, but with no solutions suggested working for me. (Clearing Internet Explorer, Increasing the Disk space to use, etc.)

Has anyone had this problem and found a suitable solution or know of a possible reason this is happening?

I'm using Windows 10 and I'm trying to configure it so that when I open a certain page in Microsoft Edge, it will detect show to open it in Internet Explorer. I'm trying to do this by using Enterprise Mode. 

I read all the articles on TechNet and it seems to be configured properly, but it simply won't work! Here's what I did...I first used the Enterprise Site Tool to create my XML file, which looks like this:

<rules version="5">
    <domain exclude="false">helpdeskgeek.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="10">www.online-tech-tips.com</domain>

Next, I went into the registry and change these two settings:

1. User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list 
2. User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Microsoft Edge\Allow you to configure the Enterprise Site List

For both, I entered the local path to my XML file. Here is where I think something is wrong. This is the path I am using:


When I type this into IE or Edge, it opens the file just fine, but like I said, when I visit the webpages in Edge, it just loads them normally. It does not give me a message to open the pages in IE.

Using Access 2003, Microsoft VB 6.5
I have an Access table with over 100 fields.
I created 3 forms and one subform (all bound to the same table), for the users to enter their information. Each field in the table is updated in only one form (e.g., cannot change the value of a field on Form1 in Form2)
Form1 includes 3 buttons which allow the user to toggle from one form to the other (including back to Form1, since the buttons part of Form1 remains visible even thought the other forms are open).
Form1 is opened in add mode from a Switchboard.
Form2 & Form3 can only be opened through Form1 (by clicking on one of the buttons).
The subform is on Form2. In most cases, the user will enter data into the subform before entering data in Form2's controls.
The Navigation Buttons, Record Selectors, Close Button and Control Box are all set to "No" on all forms.
The only way to close Form2 and Form3 is through Form1, which has an Exit button to (presumably) save the data and close all 3 forms.

At First, when adding a new record:
I would open Form1 in Add mode. The table has an index key, (id), which is an AutoNumber.
Form2 and Form3 were opened in add mode.
I assumed (wrongly) that all the data entered would be stored in one record. I ended up with 4 records, with different id #s, with data from each of the 3 forms and one with data from the subform.
So I changed my code to open Form2 & Form3 in edit mode, linking them with the id from Form1.

Hello all, I bought my lenovo Edge 2-1580 in December, but recently, the display won't turn on after I wake it up from sleep mode. The rest of the notebook still turns on and the power button is lit, but the screen will stay black even if I move the mouse or press any keys. I have to do a manual shutdown and then turn it on again, which works but then the problem occurs again when it goes to sleep mode. I've updated the drivers and disabled the notebook from going to sleep, but if I manually put it into sleep mode the problem continues. I've seen this as a common issue regarding Windows 10 as well. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I just resolved this issue recently with my Flex 3 1580, so hopefully my solution works for you.  First, update the video/graphics driver (intel or nvidia) from the Drivers & Software page on support.lenovo.com.  Test sleep mode again.  If the screen is still not turning back on, then update your BIOS.  Back on the Drivers & Software page, look for the latest BIOS update and run it.  In both cases, but especially for the BIOS update, make sure your laptop is plugged in.

Was playing around with IE "InPrivate" browser and noticed something not so private about it.

InPrivate Browsing is supposed to keep your internet tracks from showing if you walked away from your pc and didn't clear the cache. However, there's a small problem with this.

Try this:

1. Clear your ie history cache
2. Open ie and choose to open a InPrivate Browser
3. On the first tab open google and search for anything you want
4. Right click on a few links to open them in a new tab. 2 or 3 is good
5. Now close all the tabs except the first one.
6. Check your history, it should be empty
7. Now open a new tab (not from any links) (ctrl + t)
8. If you see what I see, thats not that private

What you'll see is a list of the tabs you've closed, basically the same kind of history of your session thats supposed to be private.

The only reason I bring this up is there is a possibility that some one who believes because they closed just the tabs that they don't want seen isn't good enough. You have to close the window. Most probably will, but there is a chance that some one will have a tab open that there not concerned about and thus leave the window open thinking there protected because nothings in the history. It's a small oversight in my opinion, but it could happen. I don't believe that the new tab should show any past history while using this feature.

A:IE InPrivate Browsing

Was looking through some of my old created threads and came across this one. I just wanted to remind people that they must close the ie window completely, and not just the tabs they had opened leaving one open that their not concerned with. This isn't anything ground breaking as "in private browsing" is just local anonymity.

But if your young and have pesty parents who always want to see what you've been uo to, remember this little glitch. I and I'm sure many others never close the ie browser completely, but rather just the tabs I no longer am interested in. Well thats not good enough while using "in private browsing" b/c of this little glitch that when you open the default setting new tab, it shows all the tabs you recently visited within that ie window. It keeps just as much info as history does.

Again, this doesn't mean the internet folks can't retrace your steps, this is just for those at home looking over your shoulder. If you ask me, IPB is a joke and is nothing more than trying to make people feel safe to visit sites that they most likely would not visit otherwise, but like I said, this is local protection only and only when you close ie completely and not just some of the tabs.

There are much better ways to protect yourself, one example is what is known as sandboxing. Sandboxie is a free program that when your done browsing can completely get rid of every file and folder created while using it. Its really good for testing new programs too. Yo... Read more

Yes, adding rules will slow things down considerably. Pages will take longer to render.

Hi tallphil,

To do that just add the your home page in the shortcut. For example if you wanted to start ie with google as your home page your would put:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" www.google.com -private

Also if you want all of your toolbars to show go to tools->internet options->privacy tab-> then uncheck disable toolbars and extensions when InPrivate Browsing starts.
