    Hi, is there anyway to do this? Basically an application at work needs to be opened in an in private tab so as to not conflict with another app. I'd rather click on the hyperlink and it opens automatically in an in private tab, is this possible?

    is the hyperlink in Word? Is there a reason it's in Word and not via a shortcut to the application that uses a different browser than default?

    I don't think there's much you can do to make this happen. How a link is opened is entirely down to the client machine. It will be opened in whatever browser the user has specified, not necessarily IE, and you also cannot specify which mode of the browser should be used.
