Default Browser - Default Profile?

So this post talks about it back in 2019, but it was closed and has no answer.

So yes, basically the same question. How do we set a default profile?

Sounds like you are Requesting a Feature.

So, you might adjust / include Categories and Tags, such as:

Brave Feature Requests > Desktop Requests > feature-request

If, that is, you can edit your post and do that?

There is no such thing as a default user profile in Brave as of the moment. The closest thing to a default user profile you can achieve is creating a desktop shortcut specifically for a specific user profile, which you could use to launch Brave in that specific user profile.

To achieve the above:

  1. Open Brave in the user profile you would like to create a desktop shortcut for.
  2. Type brave://settings/manageProfile in the address bar.
  3. Click on Create desktop shortcut at the bottom of the page.

Thanks. That I have done already, but doesn’t solve the problem of clicking links in applications, like on some email for example, and the link been opened in whatever profile Brave wants.

Profiles in general behave weird on Brave. I just discovered that even with ads, an ad will pop-up and Brave decides to open it on the profile that is closed.

Techlore opened a Github feature request a few hours ago.
