It would be fantastic if we could add an option to disable cookie sharing between different InPrivate windows and/or tabs.  I use multiple admin accounts and currently have to use InPrivate across multiple browsers today since cookies are shared within an InPrivate session.  If we provided a setting to disable this behavior then I could use a single browser moving forward.  This is a common problem with all browsers today and not just Edge.  This feature would set Edge apart from all the other browsers on the market and very convenient for admins.

Hi, it's great to see someone else mentioned this!
because when I opened a topic to request this, it didn't receive the attention it deserved and got abandoned
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/Block-cookies-sharing-between-Different-InPrivate...

hopefully now that a Microsoft Employee asked for it too, they will consider it more seriously :)
