Q: Folder/file sharing.

I'm new to windows 7 and I'm getting very frustrated. I have 2 user logins on the same laptop, one for me and one for my wife and I want to share folders and files with the other user. For instance all my photos are stored in My Pictures on my login and I would like to share this folder with my wife's login. I have tried all the "share with" options but noting seems to work. They all talk about sharing on a home network but I don't have a network, only one laptop. Please help before I blow a fuse!!!

 

Answer

A:

Files/folders which you want to share among users on the same computer should be put into the Public directory, C:\Users\Public. That's what the Public directory is for.

Sorry this didn't help.
