I've found the use case to open certain URLs in Edge's private mode. With Google Chrome this is quite easy: "C:\Program Files x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -incognito [URL]"

How to do this with the new Edge?

Same syntax, except that 'incognito' is replaced with 'inprivate':

start %LOCALAPPDATA%/Microsoft/"Edge SxS"/Application/msedge.exe -inprivate https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/enterprise/edge-how-to-start-certain-urls-in-private-mode/m-p/1320333
