Q: How to transfer files from one user account to another user account on windows 7?

I am using windows 7, both of my user accounts are admin accounts,
how do I moves my files from one account to the other ?

Thank you.




An ADMIN Account can access all the folders and files on the computer.

Use Start - Computer    OR    Windows Explorer  to navigate to C:\Users  to the account you
want to COPY - Right Click on the Folders (and/or files) and COPY - go to the other account
and PASTE where you want to put them. Repeat as needed. Do not delete the folders and
files from the account they are in until you are sure they are duplicated where you need

Hope this helps.
