How can I create multiple Google Chrome desktop shortcuts, each leading to a different account?
(All accounts are signed in).
- On Chrome, go to settings.
- Scroll to the user list (people), and
clickon the user profile you'd like a shortcut for*.
- Edit button will light up (after selecting a user).
Clickon that edit button.
Clickon Add desktop shortcut, then
A shortcut to that user's Chrome should now display on your desktop.
*Note: you will need to manually switch (sign-in) to each account, so that it is the
(current)account in the user list (people) in order to be able to
clickon edit, and edit that account.
*Note: you will need to sign in with at least two accounts in order to see the "Add shortcut" option.

The profile system has been updated sometime before Chrome version 75. In these versions, first activate the profile for which you want to make a shortcut. Then go to:
- Chrome name and picture
- turn on Show desktop shortcut
Return to your desktop view, and see the new profile activation icon.
