How to Create a New User Profile on Chrome

In this post, I will show you how to create a new user profile on your Google Chrome browser so that you can store bookmarks and plug-ins independently from other users. 

How to create a new chrome user

Below are the steps to creating a new Chrome user profile on your computer.

  1. Open Chrome

    You first want to go over to Chrome and scroll to the icon on the top right. It might have your profile image or a letter associated with the username. 

  2. Click manage people

    Go to manage people. And then, from here, you click Add Person. Then choose the user name. It could be a name, or it could be a brand or a company name. You can also select an icon if you’d like. I’m just going to leave it to the default icon. Click Add. And that’s pretty much all there is to it. 

  3. Sign-in

    From this point on, they want you to sign in so that all your bookmarks can be available everywhere you sign in on Chrome. So let’s go ahead and do that right now. I’m going to click already a Chrome user because I already have an account. I’m just creating a new user for that account on this browser. So go ahead and put in your password. 

  4. Sync

    After you sign in, click yes, turn on sync, and that’s all there is to it. You might see all of the bookmarks and the plug-ins that we had previously installed on this user account are on a different computer or elsewhere. And that’s why I love having different user profiles. 

How to switch between profiles

If you want to switch between users, it’s straightforward. All you have to do is go to People and select the desired user. And again, all of these bookmarks are independent of each other, so you can add different bookmarks, change different bookmarks, or create different folders, and that’ll only be for that user. And so it makes things simple and keeps things clean.
