Stop always defaulting to one gmail account

A few months ago I was able to have my personal email as the default on brave, AND create a desktop shortcut to my work email that always opened my work email. This doesn’t work anymore as when I try to open my work email via the shortcut it opens my personal email. Something seems to have changed in the past few months.
I can do it with Chrome as they allow for different profiles but I prefer to move away from Chrome.
