Is it possible to change the location of QGIS Active Profiles Folder?

A quick Google suggested that creating a new environment variable QGIS_USER_PROFILE with variable value being the path to the profile folder should work but for some reason that does not work.

  • Did you restart QGIS as requested? And does the path contain profile data? Also, how do you know it didn't work?

    I did restart QGIS multiple times, the path does contain profile data. I know it didn't work because the profile name says my name and if it did work it should have changed to my co-workers name. I thought it might be an issue with the location of the new profile folder being on a network drive, however, changing the plugin location worked with the same network drive.
