I would like to have separate Edge Dev shortcuts on my dock for each of my profiles. Anyone know if this is possible to do with a parameter like --profile for instance?

--profile-directory="Profile 1"

Hi,

 

https://superuser.com/questions/377186/how-do-i-start-chrome-using-a-specified-user-profile

 

Replace Google chrome with the correct equivalent from Microsoft Edge

 

on Windows I can do this:

 

"C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge SxS\Application\msedge.exe" --profile-directory="Profile 3"

(this is on the Target of my Edge insider shortcut in properties)

 

 

--profile-directory="Profile 3"

The argument above tells Edge browser to load which folder from:

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Edge SxS\User Data

 

so if I create a different profile in Edge browser and name it "vskorpen", then Edge will create a new folder inside this folder 

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Edge SxS\User Data

and name it "vskorpen"

 

 

so in the target of the Edge shortcut, i will add this argument:

--profile-directory="vskorpen"
