Ok so a while back i had a problem with my user, the desk top was all messed up nothing worked right,
So i made a new user named Test, at the time used to make sure everything was working (which it was)

Because my original user was all messed up i ended up moving all my stuff to the user space "Test" and forgot about it.

Now i have come to the realization that i would rather not be a Test user and i am planning to make a new user and move back to that one.

The only problem is that moving last time was a pain, it took about a month to set every thing up, remember passwords, bookmarks, sidebar apps, ect.

is there an easier way to move all my stuff?

Why not just change the name "test" to whatever you want it to be.
You can change your account user name in User Accounts located in the Control Panel.

I have done that, but a lot of programs like to use the user names folder name for what ever reason, and when i am manually navigating (ie putting in the location) i sometimes forget that its C:\Users\test
