Sharing files between user accounts (Vista)
I recently set up a second user account for my wife so she could have her own
set up and e-mail. When looking at windows explorer our pictures are only
available when using my account. How can I also view these same pictures
when in her account?

Cari,
Thanks for the response. No. I just had tham in my pictures. If I move
them into the public folder will they still show up when I click on My
pictures?

Rather than move them, copy them into the Public and then change Users to
your wife's login and check.
