In-Private Browsing on Internet Explorer

Instead of having to erase your entire history every time you use the internet, you can launch private browsing sessions that don’t save your browsing history, tracking cookies, or other temporary internet files during the session. This is generally known as incognito browsing. Here is how to launch an incognito session, known as InPrivate browsing, on Internet Explorer.
