Opening In Private Window opens additional Regular Window

Occasional Contributor

If Edge is not open and you right-click on the task bar icon selecting 'New In Private Window', it will open the In Private Window, but also a regular window as well.  I am able to duplicate this 100% of the time.

If a 'regular' window is already open, opening an In Private will create an additional regular window.  Just when there are no other windows open.

@DOS_Lover Thanks for reporting this! If you're still experiencing this, I have a couple of questions for you:


  1. What channel(s) and version(s) is this happening in? (You can find that info at edge://settings/help)
  2. Is there any difference in behavior between different channels?
  3. Does signing in or out of the browser change that?
  4. If you haven't yet, can you please submit detailed feedback and diagnostics through the browser? (Shift+Alt+I or "..." menu > Help and feedback > Send feedback)
