Where Do You Change Profile Picture and Rename Your Profile on Microsoft Edge Chromium?

To begin, the first thing you need to do is update to the latest version of Edge Chromium, Either (Canary or Dev). If you don’t want to download the newest version from the website, you can trigger an update by going to Settings > About Microsoft Edge and waiting for the browser to auto-update. Once you have done this, open Microsoft Edge Chromium, then click Settings > More in the top right-hand corner of the browser. Next click Profiles > Settings > Edit. 

Alternatively: You can get to the same location by typing edge://settings/profiles into the address bar and pressing Enter.

Once you’ve clicked Edit, all you have to do is accept the change and the entire Profile rename is completed. If you have your Microsoft account linked, you’ll also be able to change your profile picture by clicking the profile icon. Without an account, you’ll simply be able to select from a range of defaults. Although this guide has been done from/for Windows 10, you can follow an almost identical process for any other device Edge Chromium is currently running on.
