Note that some files can contain links with an absolute file path, so always best is not to copy a full profile, but only copy important data files.

See this reply on page one for a list of files that are safe to copy.

What is specifically confusing?

here you go, these are the things that is confusing as had been outlined:

'create a second profile'

you cant just copy paste? you need to create a 2nd profile??

why nobody say that?

what's the steps to create 2nd profile?

the link is too complex as someone had already noted (too complex)

it's not listed in simple steps, and there's too much colours and nosie and all this other confusion that makes it hard

well the very unclear and vague steps that one person put (that no robot or programming language woud understand) says to just copy all of it

anyhow depending on how likely this specific problem happens ('some files can contain links with an absolute file path,'), that can be another source of possible problem for getting this hopefully simple thing done

You can copy and paste, but where are you going to paste it if you don't create a second profile first?

You likely can copy the whole thing. Theoretically there could be problems but I've never seen them in the wild.

The steps to create a second profile are above, in the link about the profile manager.

Why don't you try reading what's been posted so far, and actually doing it. Or get someone who is more familiar with computers to help you.
