A few weeks ago I wrote about a nice trick which lets you open your Google Chrome in Incognito mode, automatically. Well, that trick didn’t work at all, like Tumbleweed pointed out. Anyway the guys at hackszine.com, who never stop looking for alternative ideas, got from a smart guy called Michael T. Bee a nice script which does the whole job smoothly. Here is the trick.

Open your Notepad and save the following javascript as chrome_incognito.js on your desktop.

//Chrome_Incognito.js – start new chrome incognito(sort of)
var liWait=175; //wait ms (double on older pc)

var oSh=new ActiveXObject(“WScript.Shell”);
oSh.Run(“chrome.exe”); //start chrome
WScript.Sleep(liWait);
oSh.Sendkeys(“^+N”); //start new incognito window
WScript.Sleep(liWait);
oSh.Sendkeys(“%{Tab}”); //go previous(first) browser window
WScript.Sleep(liWait);
oSh.Sendkeys(“%{F4}”); //close first browser window

Every time you double-click on the icon “…it will launch Chrome, make an incognito window, and then close the first window. It does all this by sending artificial keypress events to the application through the Shell ActiveX object, a technique which might come in handy for scripting other standard Windows applications.”
