Chrome lets you add multiple users to the browser. But when you begin to add a lot i.e. more than 15 users you stop being able to access the 'New User' button as well as users below the fold.

This is because the pop-up window which shows you the list of users does not scroll.

What is the workaround?

Is there another command that lets one access the shortcuts for each user?

Should I try to create multiple instances of chrome and have upto 15 users in each?

Go play with the developer tools (F12) – Rob W May 25 '13 at 15:17
    
Could you elaborate... – molicule May 25 '13 at 15:46
    
Press F12. That brings up the Webkit Developer tools, which includes a DOM inspector. You can use this to temporarily change the HTML/styles of a page. – Rob W May 25 '13 at 15:47
    
The list of users is part of the chrome not the page, here is a picture of an earlier chrome version img.labnol.org/di/chrome_user_profiles.png New versions have this on the right hnd side. – molicule May 25 '13 at 15:50
    
I've checked, and it appears to be impossible to alter the style of that bubble, unless you want to compile Chrome yourself. Multiple data dirs (use the --user-data-dir=path/to/dir flag) would be the easiest way. – Rob W May 25 '13 at 16:14
