  • Hi beasanca,

    Below is the Selenium JAVA sample code to launch Edge browser in private mode.

    package selenium_test;
    import org.openqa.selenium.By;
    import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
    import org.openqa.selenium.edge.*;
    import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
    public class new_java_class {
            public static void main(String[] args) {
                      System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.driver","D:\\selenium web drivers\\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe"); 
                      EdgeOptions op=new EdgeOptions();
                      op.setCapability("InPrivate", true);
                   	  WebDriver browser = new EdgeDriver(op);
                   WebElement username = browser.findElement(By.name("uname"));		
                   WebElement password = browser.findElement(By.name("psw"));		
                   WebElement btn = browser.findElement(By.name("signIn"));
