When I open Chrome it automatically goes into incognito setting. How can I get it to open in regular format when I start Chrome?

Are you on Windows? If yes, right click on the Chrome shortcut from where you launch it and post the contents of the 'target' field. – abhshkdz Jul 8 '12 at 14:27
How exactly do you open Chrome? – Dennis Jul 8 '12 at 14:54
I am using ubuntu 11.05. When I click on the shortcut for Chrome or if I use the general menu option I get the same behavior. – snoylr Jul 9 '12 at 1:55

If chrome is launching in 'incognito' mode then you should check the Properties of your desktop shortcut which you launching from.

Properties for Google Chrome

Check to see if the 'Target Field' has '-incognito' on the end (just like the picture above). If so then this is what will be causing your problem.

It is then just a simple case of removing the text and clicking 'Apply' to save your settings.
