How to delete, add or switch profile in Edge

Microsoft’s new browser, Chromium Edge, uses Profiles. A profile allows you to easily synchronize browser history, passwords, and forms across multiple devices. A frequently asked question is how you can add a profile in Edge, switch from Profile, or how to delete existing Profiles.
This tutorial will show you step by step how to add, switch and delete profiles in the new Edge browser.

How to Add Profile in Edge

  1. Click your photo in the top right corner and click Manage Profile Settings

  3. Click Add
  4. Click Sign in to sync data
  5. Choose an existing account, or add a new Work or School account, or Microsoft account
  6. Click Continue
  7. Enable “Sync browser data across all your signed-in devices” and click Next
  8. Click Done

Your second profile is now added.

How to Switch profile in Edge

  1. Click your photo in the top right corner and click Manage Profile Settings
  2. In the More Profiles section, click Switch at the right of the account you want to use

How to Delete profile in Edge

  1. Click your photo in the top right corner and click Manage Profile Settings

All browser data of that specific account is now removed. You are not able to logon with that account again until you re-add the account to the Edge profile list.
