How to use separate profiles in Chrome

Here you have a tutorial on how to create separate profiles for Google Chrome.

  • Open Chrome installation folder at:
    C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome (for Windows Vista)
    C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome (for Windows XP)
  • Go to User Data folder available inside Chrome installation folder.
  • Create a copy of the “default” folder in the “User Data” folder itself. Give that copy a name.
  • To run Google Chrome using this profile instead of the default profile, create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on desktop, choose New -> Shortcut and enter location:
    C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –user-data-dir=”..\User Data\Your_Name” (for Windows Vista)
    C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –user-data-dir="..\User Data\Your_Name" (for Windows XP)
