Find me on:

The new updates to chrome have added a nicer looking user / avatar menu, but have added a few more clicks when changing user profiles.

If like us you use this to manage different profiles, rather than users - such as work, home, or even profiles per project, then it becomes very cumbersome having to make these extra clicks.

However, you can enable this...

menu

Open chrome.
Enter chrome://flags/ as the url.
Search for "fast-user", and then hit the "enable" button.

Then at the bottom and press "Relaunch now".

 

Now you have a lovely fast user menu.
