How to switch Google Chrome profile

I want to switch Google Chrome profile with a key trigger. Is it possible to do? please advice

What do you mean by “switch chrome browser to a specific browser”?

Sorry what i mean was specific profile

Hey @abbas_zahid,

A fair amount can be done with Chrome from the command line.

Here's one example:

Change User Profile In Google Chrome.kmmacros (2.5 KB)

NOTE – I'm not sure the current profile can be changed in the Front window via this method – but it's worth investigating.

@ccstone kinda works, but doesn't switch to specific profile correctly I have a pofile name TEST but it doesn’t switch to it.

Hey @abbas_zahid,

Your profiles are not necessarily named the way you think they are. Look in here

~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/

Use the Spotlight search field in the Finder to search for your profile name and look for any “Preferences” files you find.

~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Preferences

My main profile is NOT named “Default”...

~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Profile 1/Preferences

My other profile is NOT named “Profile 1”...

So – you have to do a little detective work.
