Microsoft’s browser has gotten better this 2020. We’re not talking about Internet Explorer, but instead the latest Microsoft Edge. While the legacy Edge version was based on HTML, the new Edge is based on Chromium which is also what Google Chrome is based on. This gives the browser a significant boost in speed as well as updated features. In this latest installment of our troubleshooting series we will show you how to create multiple profiles in Microsoft Edge.
Creating Multiple User Profiles in Microsoft Edge
Profiles allow multiple computer users to have their own personalized browsing experience. When you sign in to the browser you will be using the default user profile. Your bookmarks, browser settings, and extensions just to name a few will be stored in this profile. If another person were to use the browser then it would be a good idea to create another profile for that person to keep your information separate.
Add profile from Edge settings
The best way to add a profile is from the Microsoft Edge settings.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
