Using a web browser means building up a profile with your own settings and bookmarks. You can create multiple user profiles in Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers.

With Edge Chromium, you can add multiple profiles. Profiles allow multiple users to operate in a shared environment while maintaining access to their personalized browser settings, bookmarks, and extension.

Follow these steps to create multiple profiles in Microsoft Edge:
