Disable InPrivate Browsing in Internet Explorer 8

The InPrivate Browsing feature, new in Internet Explorer 8, can be helpful in protecting your privacy. However, there are times you might not want users to be able to freely browse. Fortunately, you can disable this feature with the Group Policy settings in the Windows XP, Vista, and 7 professional editions:

  1. Open the Group Policy editor by running gpedit.msc from the XP Run dialog or the Windows 7 or Vista search field on the Start Menu.
  2. Navigate to Computer or User Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Internet Explorer / InPrivate.
  3. Change the Turn off InPrivate Browsing status to Enabled.
