PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows XP

Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



I recently set up a new user account on my Windows XP home OS for my wife. I have several files (and Internet favorites)on the old account that I'd like to transfer to her account. How do I do this? I would also like to know how to transfer any programs which I may download to one account into the other without having to download it twice (subsequently using twice the systems memory).

For the second question, make a folder that you share with everyone else on that computer (everyone has read and write rights, check the folder properties for that), where you write the files to.

As for the first part, the internet favorites for IE can be found under C:\Documents and Settings\your name\Favorites .. If you copy all of the folders & links (choose all) in that folder to her Favorites folder, you're in effect using the same IE Favorites.
You will need Administrator rights to be able to see her Documents and Settings folder.
