How to Enable an Extension in Edge’s In Private Mode

Know how to Enable an Extension in Edge’s In Private Mode with simple easy steps- 

Microsoft came up with a number of updates for better user experiences, one of it is support for extensions in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10. Under 100 expansions are accessible formally at the ideal opportunity for Microsoft Edge and that is likely not going to change at any point in the near future.

It is by default in Edge that you can work with extensions only in regular browsing mode. In case you have to also use the InPrivate Browsing mode, you will have to allow the extensions manually.

The principle motivation behind why extensions are not empowered in Microsoft Edge’s private perusing mode of course is that Microsoft has no power over the information gathering of augmentations. This could prompt expansions gathering information while you are using InPrivate Browsing mode.

How you can Enable extensions in Microsoft Edge’s InPrivate Browsing mode-

If you compare it with other browsers and browsing modes, it is comparatively easy to enable extensions in InPrivate Browsing mode. However, you have to make sure that you are doing so on Windows 10 build 17074 or newer. If you talk about it in detail, this service is available only for the latest Windows 10 Insider Builds in the present scenario. It is believed that the feature will be feature out for the whole Windows 10 population in the next feature upgrade. Rumour has it that Microsoft is most likely to roll out the feature in March/April 2018.

Below mentioned are the steps following which you can enable extensions so that they run in InPrivate Browsing mode as well:

  1. Launch the Microsoft Edge browser in your system.
  2. The next step is to select the menu icon and then click on the option of  Extensions from the list of options available on the menu.
  3. Navigate your point to the extension that you need to allow/enable while browsing in private browsing. After that, be sure to select the cogwheel icon that will most likely appear on hover.
  4. You will then discover a check box which will read  “Allow for InPrivate browsing”, checkmark on that.
  5. After all these steps are completed, Microsoft Edge will pop-up with a notification afterward: “Microsoft Edge cannot block extension from collecting your browsing history”.

One thing you might want to take note of is that you can only select the check box of enabling the extensions is that extension has to be enabled in regular mode. In other words, it is not possible for you to use/run an extension only while browsing with InPrivate Browsing.


This is how to Enable an Extension in Edge’s In Private Mode.
