Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm synching bookmarks etc. with Google Chrome across devices. Now I created a 2nd Chrome user (to have different bookmarks at work which still sync) but when I switch to that Chrome-user and try to login it says:

This account is already used on the computer.

How can I get around this? I don't feel like creating a 2nd Google account for that purpose.

How do you create a 2nd Chrome user without creating a 2nd Google account? If the two accounts are the same person then maybe just have a separate "Work" folder for work-related bookmarks? –  w3d Mar 25 '13 at 11:58
You can create multiple user-account in Chrome's settings. Having a seperate "Work" folder would be the easiest options but at work my browser-configuration and extensions are different. Also I don't want to merge passwords of both profiles etc. –  Hedge Mar 25 '13 at 12:14
