I need to multiple profiles in Opera Gx like Chrome, I tried following this post: https://forums.opera.com/topic/20040/how-to-set-up-multiple-profiles-in-opera
When I complete the command prompt and press Enter, a new Opera Profile opened, but when I close that Opera window. I can not open it again with my shortcut!
I hope Opera Gx developers can make the "new profile" button so that we can easier to create profile like Chrome.
(I hope you guys understand because my grammar and English writing skills are bad)

@sonthomas List what you have in the target field in the shortcut's properties, so we can double-check it. Also, rename the shortcut to something other than "Opera". Something like "Opera Work" for example. Opera could be changing the shortcut on you if it's just named "Opera".
Or, if you want, you can try it the following way instead. Just note that it will use more hard drive space this way as it duplicates program files. But, unless you're creating a zillion extra profiles, it won't be a big deal.
Download the offline Opera GX installer from https://www.opera.com/download, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Programs\Opera GX Name", set "install for" to "standalone installation", uncheck "import data from default browser", and install. Then, right-click on "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Programs\Opera GX Name\launcher.exe", choose to create a shortcut, name it "Opera GX Name", and cut and paste the shortcut on your desktop.
yourusernameabove with your user account name as seen in "C:\Users". Replace
Namein "Opera GX Name" with the name you want to give the profile ("Work", as in "Opera GX Work" for example).
Then, repeat for each extra profile you want.
