Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance. The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS. The Chromium based Microsoft Edge supports having multiple profiles. Profiles allow multiple users to operate in a shared environment while maintaining access to their personalized browser settings, bookmarks, and extensions. You can sign in to a profile with your Microsoft account, your work/school account, or stay signed out of the profile for it to just be a local profile. When you sign in to a profile with a Microsoft account, you can turn on sync to have Microsoft Edge sync your history, favorites, passwords, and other browser data across all devices you are signed in to a profile in Microsoft Edge with the same account. Profiles in Microsoft Edge allow you to separate your browsing data into independent profiles. Data associated with one profile is separate from data associated with other profiles. Your personal favorites and history, for example, are not synchronized with your work account if you set each up in different profiles. Profiles can also be useful if you wanted to share access to your Microsoft Edge browser with another user (ex: family member), or to keep your work and personal browsing separate. However, users are able to easily switch between existing profiles in Microsoft Edge without the need for passwords. If users have access to the same device, users may create another profile on the same version of Microsoft Edge without the permission of the current profile owner. Removing the profile from Microsoft Edge settings permanently deletes browsing data for the specific profile stored on the device, such as browsing history, favorites, form fill data, and passwords. Data synced to your account may still be stored in the Microsoft cloud and may be cleared from the Microsoft privacy dashboard. This tutorial will show you how to remove one or more profiles from your Chromium based Microsoft Edge. Here's How: 1 Open Microsoft Edge. 2 Click/tap on the Settings and more (Alt+F) button (3 dots), and click/tap on Settings. (see screenshot below) 3 Click/tap on Profiles on the left side, and click/tap on the Switch button on the profile (ex: "Example Profile 2") you want to remove. (see screenshot below) You would skip this step if you are already using the profile you want to remove. 5 Click/tap on the More actions (3 dots) button for the profile, and click/tap on Remove. (see screenshot below) 6 Click/tap on Remove profile to confirm. (see screenshot below) 7 You can now close the Settings tab if you like.
