    Default Disable InPrivate Browsing in Internet Explorer

    InPrivate browsing this is most advanced feature of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8. What it does is it keeps your tracks clear, it provides you secure mode of surfing the web. InPrivate Browsing prevents Internet Explorer from storing data about a user’s browsing session. This includes cookies, temporary Internet files, history, and other data. No data is recorded, no cookies, no temporary files nothing is recorded or saved while you surf the web. Sounds very interesting Huh!

    But for some people it is something that they don’t want, they want to keep records of their/someone activities, they don’t want some one to hit on their system and surf to any site without leaving a record. But it can’t be possible unless you don’t turn off InPrivate Browsing In Internet Explorer.

    So how to do that?

    Start your Registry Editor (Start > Run > type regeditand hit enter).
    Go to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Inte rnet Explorer\Privacy
    Create a DWORD value named EnableInPrivateBrowsing and set it to 0, and to re-enable it, set the DWORD value to 1 or delete the key.

    Now restart IE and you can see your applied changes.

    I won't suggest anyone to disable Inprivate filtering in such a way.

    PS2 and sharing hosts like megaupload are not trusted sources, no matter what you upload and share

    Providing registry edit instructions when unnecessary and without instructions to back up the registry is irresponsible.

    You can disable InPrivate Browsing by using Parental Controls in Windows Vista, or Windows Live Family Safety on Windows XP. Network administrators can disable InPrivate Browsing through Group Policy.

    Unhappy Inprivate browsing

    I tried to turn off inprivate browsing through parental controls and it will not let me. I get the message "MMC cannot open the file C:\Windows\system32\gpedit.msc". I find this very annoying and very frustrated.

    Group Policy is not available in all the versions of Windows. So please confirm that your version has it. And make sure you are signed in as Admin.

    Via gpedit msc. you normally do so as follows:

    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > InPrivate.

    In RHS pane, double-click Turn off InPrivate Browsing, and select Enabled. Click Apply/OK.

    If it doesnt work, you may create a system restore point first and then try the above registry hack.
