How to Change Name of Profile in Microsoft Edge Chromium

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 Chromium based Microsoft Edge supports having multiple profiles each having their own individual identities, favorites, settings, and extensions. Profiles in Microsoft Edge are like the profiles for accounts in Windows, but on a browser level instead.

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 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.

When you add a profile to Microsoft Edge and do not sign in to the profile with a Microsoft account or work/school account, Profile # will be its name by default.

If you add a profile to Microsoft Edge and do sign in to the profile with a Microsoft account or work/school account, Personal # will be its name by default.

This tutorial will show you how to change the name of a profile in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.
