Chrome incognito mode

As a follow up to my admittance of switching over to the Chrome web browser, it would be in good order to share how to use chrome in incognito mode. No, this mode will not make you impossible to track, though it is a feature that assumes you don't want websites to track you down by remembering things about you. To use Chrome in incognito mode, you must run chrome with a parameter. Specifically:
chrome.exe --incognito
To launch chrome without using a command prompt, make a shortcut on your desktop with chrome, and edit the "Target" to be
C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --incognito
You will see a little masked spy in the upper left corner of your chrome window if you did it right... and probably some errors or other demoralizing things if you didn't.
