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:
To get a straight answer, visit chrome://version/. Your complete, ready to copy-and-paste profile path will be there, under Profile Path, along with other useful info about your chrome install.
Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8:
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
For more info (Mac, Linux), refer to Google Support → Create a new browser user profile.
User profiles are stored in User Data Directory and it vary depending on the operating system.
The easiest way is to navigate to
chrome://version and look for the Profile Path field.
