How to always open Chrome in Incognito mode on Windows 11 or 10?

There are basically two ways that you can use to surf the Internet through Google Chrome. One of these is the Normal mode and the other is Incognito Mode. The main difference between these two is that in the latter none of your browsing history, cookies and site data, or information entered in forms are saved on your device. This means your activity doesn’t show up in your Chrome browser history, so people who also use your device won’t see your activity. If you’d rather utilize a keyboard shortcut, simply press Ctrl + Shift + N after starting the Chrome browser on your computer to launch an incognito Chrome window.

But you have to go through this process again each time you open an incognito Chrome window which can be too much work.
