  1. This might work...
    Click Start > Search programs and files
    Type: GPEDIT.MSC and press Enter
    User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > InPrivate

    Turn off InPrivate Browsing: Enabled
  2. Why would you want to disable it? It sounds like a great aid to personal privacy.

    Lots of reasons.
    1. Small business environment
    2. Children
    3. Public Computer
    4. Nosey Spouse (hey it could happen I guess lol)
  4. Nosiness - I understand.
  5. boonality, Nosy Spouse - you can't have a nosy spouse, if you're not married.
    Children - See above.
    Public Computer - Usually blocked from user modifications. They usually require Administrator privileges.
    Small business environment - oops you're fired. :)

    I was by no means referring to anyone specific, sorry but you are not everyone.

    Again, not being specific here.

    Yes but the administrator may need to set policy locally and this is one way to do so.

    This only holds up if you have a specifically written acceptable use policy, and most likely a laywer too.

    So uh, what was the point of your reply? All I gathered is that you figured I was directly speaking about how you would use this feature? Your not even the OP, nor are you the person asking why someone would want to do this.
