In this article, we’ll discuss how to enable or disable Chrome’s new profile management system, delete unwanted profiles, and enable or disable “Show at startup” for multiple users. To disable multiple user profiles, you’ll need to disable the “Show at startup” option. This is the option that allows you to view all profile options when Chrome starts up.
Enable or disable the new profile management system
The new profile management system allows multiple users to set up their own profile on Chrome. This way, they won’t affect each other’s bookmarks or account details. Users can enable or disable the new feature by going to chrome://flags. Alternatively, they can add or delete user profiles from the start page. To add or delete a profile, click on the three dots next to the name.
Once the profile management system is enabled, users cannot turn it off again. A new window will open. You can then select the Enable new profile management system link. The new system defaults to enabled. If you disable it, you’ll have to restart Chrome. To enable it, click the button next to “Enable the new profile management system”. After enabling the feature, you’ll see a drop-down menu where you can select your Google account. Click the name of the user profile to reveal the user card. To drop password protection, click the lock icon.
To disable the new profile management system, you can go into the settings of your browser. If you disable Show at Startup, Chrome won’t bring the profile selector screen after startup. If you want to delete a profile, click “Delete” again. You can also select the “Uninstall” option to delete the profile from Chrome.
Delete unwanted profiles
Sometimes, you might want to delete an important profile that is no longer used by you. Google has a feature that allows you to do just that. The option is in the profile icon. Simply click on it, sign in with your Google account, and then follow the on-screen directions. You will be prompted to confirm the deletion of your data.
You can also set your default profile in Chrome. Once you do this, the profile selector window will not pop up again. Instead, you will be automatically logged in with the most recently used profile. Deleted profiles will be deleted along with the data associated with them. If you want to delete your profiles, it’s best to clear your data first.
If you’re a power user of Google Chrome, you’ve probably already learned how to manage different browsing contexts with the help of the profiles. Each profile contains its own bookmarks, browsing history, cookies, and sessions. Chrome profiles make it easy to separate browsing contexts in a more logical manner. However, keeping these profiles organized is not as straightforward as it seems.
Disable multiple user profiles
One of the most talked-about new features in Chrome 2022 is the ability to disable multiple user profiles. This feature was introduced in recent versions of Chrome, but it hasn’t gone down well with users. We have previously covered how to disable Tab Search and Reading List, two other features that had previously been integrated into Chrome’s desktop experience. But what if you need these features back?
Chrome’s new update has brought a new menu to the top-right of the app that allows you to manage multiple user profiles. The new menu can be obnoxious, so you might want to disable it. You can do this in the flags menu, which will bring up the old profile menu again.
Once you disable multiple user profiles, you can reactivate them by selecting the profile you want to use. This will remove all the data associated with that profile, so make sure you don’t delete anything that’s important. Chrome profiles are useful because they let you separate personal and professional activities.
Enable or disable the Show at Startup option
In Chrome, you can set up several profiles. Each profile has a different profile picture, name, and color theme. It’s not interconnected with other profiles, but they do share some similar features, such as saved passwords, bookmarks, and favorites. To switch between profiles, simply click on the profile switcher icon at the right side of the address bar.
If you don’t want to see your profile selection window every time your browser launches, you can disable the Show at Startup option. To disable the feature, you simply go to the profile selector window in the bottom right corner of your browser. Uncheck the “Show at startup” option and select a different profile.
In Chrome, you can also manually link your Google account to your profile. This will allow you to switch between profiles without losing any bookmarks. However, if you are worried about losing all of your bookmarks, you can try forcing a new profile. If you don’t want to risk losing any of your bookmarks, make sure to back up your Google account first.
