  2. On the page, click Create a New Profile.
  3. Read the introduction and click Next / Continue.
  4. Enter a name for your new profile.

    Use a profile name that is descriptive, such as your personal name. This name is not exposed to the Internet. Optionally, to change where the profile is stored on your computer, click Choose Folder.

  5. Click Finish / Done.
