I set up a personal account on my computer and a business one. I have hundreds of personal pictures in a folder on my main business user and want to transfer them to my personal. Can someone tell me how to do this?

This is very easy. On your personal account, go to (assuming this is correct on your PC) C:\Documents and Settings\<buisness account username>

and then you will see folders such as <username>'s Documents and Desktop. You can browse in this window to where the pictures are (probably My Pictures?) and select the one's you want and copy them/move them to the personal account's Desktop or My Pictures folder.

If you get Access Denied errors, then you could put the pictures on an external hard drive or a flash drive and move them that way.

Thank you! The first option worked like a charm. Now, how can I share things on my other login like my itunes from my main account?

Hello Chugg.

Apple has just the answer you need HERE. Be sure to follow the instructions for Windows.

Same concept can be applied for any other files you wish to share. Simply put them into a public folder like Shared Documents.

With Regards,
The Panda

Ok this link looks like what I want. But where is my shared folder that I can do this? I am a bit lost.
