Piggy-backing on https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/Feature-request-Start-menu-Taskbar-Desktop-shortc..., I'd like to see in the right-click menu of Edge icon in taskbar the ability to choose what profile opens.  Right now, it defaults to the last profile used, but that's not necessarily the profile I want to use.

 

Alternatively, maybe a way to set the default profile that opens if no Edge UI's are open.  That may be tougher since you can now have background extensions running without the main UI open.

Thank you for sharing this information with us. That is an interesting option. I'm not sure if that is something that can be practically implemented. I will present it to the product team for their consideration.
