How to make chrome desktop shortcuts work?

I reinstalled chrome and added 2 accounts, created desktop shortcuts for each. I checked the target for the shortcuts and the two are pointing at different profile numbers which is good. But the behavior of both links are just like the normal chrome shortcut. It will open the most recent user. How do I solve this? Is there a proper way to make a shortcut for each account?

Hi there,

Here is how to create desktop shortcut for different user profile:
  1. Switch to a user profile you want.
  2. Click menu icon and go to Settings.
  3. In "People" section, select the user profile your are using now.
  4. Click Edit button.
  5. Click Add desktop shortcut and click Save.
  6. Repeat with other user profiles.
  7. Test the shortcuts.
Let me know if it works!

Hi Rong Jie,

Yes this is the method I used to make desktop shortcuts. But they don't work.
