I recently gave my son my old computer, since I wasn't using it and I have a new laptop. I have Windows 10 Pro on the tower computer I gave him.

 

The problem is he has been logging in under my profile and has installed programs under that. I need to know how to merge my old profile with his new profile, both administrators, so he has access to everything he's done on his computer since I gave it to him. I haven't done anything except create a new user acct for him under his name and email. Im going to make it an admin acct before I do anything.

 

I've seen where you copy everything except the Nt*.* files to a third folder, then under the new profile move those to the new profile's directory. Is that the best way?

 

Thanks,

 

Lorri
