How to create and manage multiple user profiles in Chrome

Ian Paul | Jan. 22, 2014
One of Google's Chrome's flagship features is the ability to sign in with your Google account and sync your history, bookmarks, apps, and extensions across multiple PCs. Signing in also helps improve your Google Now suggestions, and automatically signs you in to Google services like Gmail, Drive, and Google+.

Switching between users
To switch between users, just click the user icon that appears in the upper left corner of the browser window. The other created users will appear in a drop down menu. Select the one you want to switch to and a new window will open for that user profile. If that's too much trouble, you can also use the customized desktop shortcuts Chrome offers to make when creating a profile to open the browser as a particular user. Enjoy!
