But for some people it is something that they don’t want, they want to keep records of their/someone activities, they don’t want some one to hit on their system and surf to any site without leaving a record. But it can’t be possible unless you don’t turn off InPrivate Browsing In Internet Explorer.

So how to do that?

Start your Registry Editor (Start > Run > type regeditand hit enter).

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Privacy

Create a DWORD value named EnableInPrivateBrowsing and set it to 0, and to re-enable it, set the DWORD value to 1 or delete the key.

Now restart IE and you can see your applied changes.


Alternatively, you can download Registry Tweak that will do that.
