@fan59k Welcome to HP Community!

 

Note: Please ensure the complete product name/number for a quicker response from the community, as we need to know what we are dealing with to provide an accurate solution:
Click here for steps on finding the information we need!

Remember: Do not share any of your personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc.

 

If you’re using Windows 10 Home, the Local Group Policy Editor is inaccessible, but you can still disable Microsoft Edge InPrivate Browsing using the Registry Editor.

  1. Open the Registry Editor and navigate to the following location:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft
  2. Right-click on Microsoft key in the left pane and choose New -> Key, and name it MicrosoftEdge. Now right-click on the newly created key MicrosoftEdge and choose New –> Key, and name it Main.
  3. Select the Main key in the left, and then right-click empty space in the right pane. Select New -> DWORD (32-bit Value), name it AllowInPrivate and set its value to 0.

  4. Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect. Open Microsoft Edge. The New InPrivate window option should be greyed out.

If you want to turn on Microsoft Edge InPrivate browsing again, just following the same instructions above. But, change the value of AllowInPrivate from 0 to 1.

 

Keep me posted, as I (Or a trusted colleague) shall follow-up on this case to ensure the concern has been addressed, 

And your device is up and running again, only in case you don't get back to us, first! 

That said, If the information I've provided was helpful, give us some reinforcement by clicking the solution and kudos buttons, 

That'll help us, and others see that we've got the answers!

Good Luck.

Thank you for your help.

 

My laptop is HP 15-ac143wm.

 

I opened it but mine only has HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

@fan59k That's correct, once you get to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", you should be able to find software and so on, under the list of options on the registry editor,

did you happen to scroll down and check?
