google chrome – Why I can no longer create *separate* Gmail Desktop apps?

I used to have a few “Desktop Apps” for Gmail created as shortcuts, following these steps:

⠇(top right) > More tools > Create Shortcut > Open as Window

I’d then have one app per Gmail account. It worked perfectly. Now, it’s no longer possible. If you create one Gmail app per account using the above steps, a single Desktop Gmail app is created, with the various accounts “nested” as windows. This is incredibly bad as you can’t use the standard Cmd+Tab to switch between windows and, more importantly, every time you close the app, you have to manually re-add ALL the accounts to that single Gmail app.

How can we go back to the previous behavior? Any workaround? I’m on Mac and tried to edit the info.plist files unsuccessfully.
