Google Chrome Pinned/Tasks on taskbar icon

I have pinned google chrome to the taskbar and was wondering if I was able to pin a different chrome user to the right click menu of google chrome on the taskbar. Like Windows explorer, excel, word etc are able to pin folders and shortcuts to the menu.
Either through a reg hack or actually able to do it.

I did some investigating and found this which might be of use => [SOLVED] Separate Taskbar Shortcuts for Google Chrome Accounts.

I hope this helps!

Hi
I have alredy created defferent icons for different users. I would rather not have 4 chrome icons pinned. I was hoping to have the default profile as the icon and if i right click the icon i could choose one of the other profiles.
Im guessing if it is possible it would require a registry hack

Quite possibly. Perhaps somebody else will be able to help you!
I am sure that there are others who would also like this feature!
