Is there a way to start Chrome in incognito mode by default? 0 Recommended Answers 4 Replies 0 Upvotes

I have the Chrome browser pinned to my shelf. When I left-click, a new Chrome window is opened. If I right-click, I can open a new incognito window from the context menu. Is there a way to flip this so that a single left-click will open a new incognito window, and the choice to open a normal window is in the context menu?

I don't think you can do that. 

I'm pretty sure you can do ctrl + shift + n to open a incognito window.

Hi Jonathan Cutting
 
There is one way you can do this. 
 
1 - Use the Linux (Beta) terminal to download and install Chrome for Linux Debian 10
 
2 - Edit the . desktop file for the new Chrome icon and add --incognito after the exec command 
 
This is similar to how it can be done in Windows.

Hrm... Both of these are kind of workarounds, rather than solutions.

@Tickmc, wouldn't your suggestion essentially be running Chrome inside of a Linux VM, itself inside of Chrome? Also, given how unstable the Linux VM in Chrome OS is (which is funny, since Chrome OS is rather unstable itself), I'm hesitant to install anything in Linux that can be installed natively in Chrome OS.

Hi Jonathan
 
Kind of, but it works - and I don't find Chrome OS / Linux unstable at all, personally.
 
Please feel free to send feedback directly to the team about this via Alt + Shift + i and consider filing a bug for it via crbug.com where you can track its progress.
