Cant open brave in incognito after changing "target' icon name in properties

i want brave to always open in incognito mode. but after i change the icon name on properties, target , brave is unable to open.

name on TARGET is the following:

“C:\Program Files\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe” -incognito


“C:\Program Files\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe” --incognito

i use WINDOWS 10 PRO.

launcher icon Is on windows 8 compability mode. because some sites were not working without it.

my system currently is not in english. is this problem?

perhaps is some configuration or register thing ?


i discovered the problem. it was duck duck go extension f installed on brave that was causing the problem.

hope this forum get more admins though. sorry but the answers are taking too much time.

I’ve found a solution to this issue disable all your extensions & edit the target In the shortcut so it has --incognito It should open then re-enable all your extension one by one, Close Brave browser & start with one extension enabled & If It launches In private do this one by one for each extension. I found that the Microsoft Rewards extension I had Installed was causing my problem.
