Chrome Chrome: add another New person or New Profile to Chrome

    Add another Google Chrome profile is useful if the computer is being used by more than one person. There is an option within Google Chrome to create multiple users, so-called profiles.

    If the Chrome admin is setting up a profile for each user in the browser and linking it to a Google account, the user always has access to their own web page favorites, chrome settings, and chrome browser extensions.

    To set up a new Google Chrome user profile, click on the account icon in the top right corner of Google Chrome. Select Manage people from the menu.

    The user should see a shortcut on the desktop, indicating this is the Chrome profile with all their settings, favorites, browser extensions, and web page history.

    1. The new version doesn’t seem to be working properly. It’s creating new profiles, but it’s just overwriting my existing profiles – new picture, but same name and links open. I live and die by this feature because I’ve got a dozen different clients, so I’d love any help you could provide to get this working. I’ve even tried setting up Firefox profiles, but they are also a bit difficult to manage.
