I'm using user profile switching in Chrome, which works perfectly fine. Except for when I'm clicking links, that are depending on one of the profiles being logged in. By default Chrome just opens the link in this profile, which was used last.

How can I force Chrome to use specific profile?


With the current version of Chrome (51.0.2704.106 (64-bit)) you can just right-click an url and then open it with the fourth menu choice from top: "Open Link as PROFILE" (your configured Chrome profile). I hope this helps.

    This does work, however, not when opening links from any other app, which is where I most often run into this annoying problem. Furthermore, it would be great to have a default app and not need to remember and go through this menu process for each link. – Michael Liquori Jan 12 '17 at 21:07

    For me "Open Link As" shows up but only when I already have another profile open in another Chrome. – Daan Bakker Oct 8 '17 at 7:14
  • Clarifying @DaanBakker's comment: you have windows from at least two different profiles open before this submenu is available. This feels like a bug to me. – Dave Land Apr 19 at 19:02
