This is more of a feature request. Currently Edge itself doesn’t have hooks to launch in InPrivate mode. Once those are added we can add a capability for WebDriver to support it. Duping to a feature item to track adding the capability at that time.
This issue has been resolved External. This means this issue may require a new feature to be implemented or other work that is more significant than a typical bug. You may be able to find more information on this issue by searching for related features on status.microsoftedge.com and uservoice.microsoftedge.com.
“Feature request?” No, this is a missing requirement, a.k.a. a “defect.”
