How to switch user in Google Chrome? I made a new user for myself but now I want to put Google Chrome back to how it was, since this isn't my computer.

I tried clicking and double-clicking on 'default profile' but nothing happened.

The two downvotes above might be for the same reason as I gave here - but neither are mine! – pnuts Jan 13 '13 at 19:14

Frustratingly, it's not possible from that screen. Instead,

Click the icon on the top corner of the window or press Ctrl+Shift+M (Mac: ⌘-Shift-M) to select the user. No icon will appear if you only have one user associated with the browser.


In my case, the avatar of a ninja.
