How to open Microsoft Edge using the command prompt on Windows 10



Microsoft Edge logo

You can start applications and programs from the command prompt – and Microsoft Edge is no exception. You can also use Command Prompt to start Edge in InPrivate Browsing mode, open a specific website, or restore the previous session. Here’s how.

To start Microsoft Edge from Command Prompt, you must have already downloaded and installed Edge. These steps work for both Legacy Edge and Chromium-based Edge.

Start Edge from the command prompt

Open the command prompt by typing “cmd” in the Windows search bar 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 will now open normally.

Open a specific site in Edge using the command prompt

Instead of launching Edge and then typing a URL in the web browser to visit a site, you can do both at the same time from 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 site you want to visit. For example:

start msedge www.howtogeek.com

Command to open a site in Edge

Edge starts and opens the specified site.

Start Edge with the previous session restored using the command prompt

If you’ve accidentally closed Edge and want to restart it with all of the tabs restored from the previous session, you can do so using Command Prompt.

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

start msedge --restore-last-session

Starting edge with command to restore previous session

Edge will start with all of the restored tabs from the previous session.

Start Edge in InPrivate Browser mode using Command Prompt

If you use Microsoft Edge in InPrivate browsing mode, your browsing information will be cleared after the session ends, your download history will not be recorded, and Bing Search will be prevented from associating with you.

To start Edge in InPrivate browser mode, open the command prompt (type “cmd” in Windows search and select “Command Prompt”) and run this command:

start msedge -inprivate

Starting edge in the InPrivate mode command

Edge will now start in InPrivate Browsing mode.
