I also found a couple of things.  This one
https://bitbucket.org/gmyx/browserchooser2/wiki/Home
seems promising.  Apparently you can set it as the default browser in Windows, it then directs commands as needed.  I couldn't get it to work though, then, while messing with the icon-chooser, I completely broke it.  Now it just crashes over and over.  I even killed and deleted it, and rebooted, and redownloaded it.  Still it crashes. 

This also seems interesting:

it links to this $7 Windows Store app
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/account-surfer/9phvp9rjr7r7?rtc=1&activetab=pivot:overviewtab

Not sure I want to pay $7 for an app that might not even work though...

LATER....   Well I took a leap of faith and bought/installed Account Surfer.   It seems to work well.  You do indeed set it as your default browser, then it redirects as needed.  I'm not detecting any sluggishness when opening links.  There are still 15 (yes 15!) Chrome processes running in the background even though I don't have Chrome open.  ...I suppose that's to be expected from Chrome though.

Good thoughts, but I think  Wraith is correct.  Using mailto wouldn't work. 

I'll investigate this more.  I couldn't find anything useful in the above-mentioned AppData folder.  Come to think of it, I didn't think to check the Chrome Add-in store.

I wonder if the setting is in here:
C:\Users\steve\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

That's a really old post you've referenced...
Sorry about that.  I even quoted the post and still didn't notice the date.  Thanks for sharing your stuff!   :D

I suspect that this is not even possible, but I thought I'd post anyway -- just in case. 

I use Chrome as my web browser.  Most of my bookmarks etc. are in my main personal profile. At work though, when people share links with me, I have to be in my Google account from work.   You switch profiles by clicking your avatar in the top/right of the Chrome window.   It's also possible to make Desktop links directly to each profile.  In my case the two link targets are:
 
C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome_proxy.exe  --profile-directory=Default
and
C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome_proxy.exe"  --profile-directory="Profile 1"

The problem is that, if you don't specify (by using one of the above links), Chrome will always open a link using the most recently-accessed profile.  So multiple times per day, I'll open a link at work that someone sends me, then Chrome will pop up in my personal profile and give me an error message that I don't have permission to access the file.  It's super-annoying! 

What I'd like is some way to "tell" Chrome that if I open an Outlook email link, use my work profile.  I guess that would need to be some kind of back-running utility that stays on all the time?  I don't know.  Maybe an Outlook add-in is what I need. 

Thoughts?
