Microsoft Edge logo

You can launch applications and applications using the command prompt – and Microsoft Edge is no exception. You can also use the command prompt to launch Edge in InPrivate browsing mode, open a specific Web site, or restore the previous session. Here’s how.

To start Microsoft Edge with the command prompt, you must have already downloaded and installed Edge. These steps work for both Legacy Edge and Chromium-based Edge.

Start Edge with the command prompt

Open the command prompt by typing “cmd” in the Windows search field and selecting “Command Prompt” from the search results.

Command Prompt App in Windows Search

In the command prompt, run this command:

start msedge

Command to start Edge normally

Microsoft Edge now opens normally.

Open a specific Edge Web site using the command prompt

Instead of launching Edge and then entering a URL in your browser to visit a website, you can do both at the same time as the command prompt.

Open the command prompt (type “cmd” in Windows search and select “Command Prompt”) and run this command:

start msedge 

Replace with the URL of the website you want to visit. For example:

start msedge www.howtogeek.com

Command to open a website in Edge

Edge will launch and open the specified site.

Start Edge with the previous session restored with the command prompt

If you accidentally closed Edge and want to restart it with all the tabs from the previous session restored, you can do so with the command prompt.

Open the command prompt (type “cmd” in Windows search and select “Command Prompt”) and run this command:

start msedge --restore-last-session

Start edge with previous session reset command

Edge starts with all tabs from the previous session restored.

Launch Edge in InPrivate Browsing mode using the command prompt

Using Microsoft Edge in InPrivate Browsing mode deletes your web information at the end of the session, does not record your download history, and prevents Bing Search from being associated with you.

To launch Edge in InPrivate Browsing mode, open Command Prompt (type “cmd” in Windows Search and select “Command Prompt”) and run this command:

start msedge -inprivate

Starting edge in the InPrivate command

Edge now starts in InPrivate mode.
