Where are the user profile directories of Google Chrome located in?
It may seem like a very simple question, but I couldn't find it.
I checked inside %APPDATA%, but there were noting relevant there.
My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.

%APPDATA% by default (as far as I am aware) takes you to the Roaming App Data.

Chrome resides in your Local App Data (%LOCALAPPDATA%). You will find Chrome's User "stuff" in:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\

Thank for telling the difference between %APPDATA% and %LOCALAPPDATA%. – hkBattousai Aug 28 '11 at 23:19
You can find the directory of the current profile you are running by looking at chrome://version/: the Profile Path should show you the exact directory. – Kariem Feb 26 '14 at 11:55

Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8:

  • %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\

Windows XP:

  • %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\

For more info (Mac, Linux), refer to Google Support → Create a new browser user profile.

To get a straight answer, visit chrome://version/. Your complete, ready to copy-and-paste profile path will be there, along with other useful info about your chrome install.
