changing user folder names
As is semper fi's problem, i got this laptop new but secondhand. I changed
the account name but the folder name can't be changed. I created another
admin account but I need to transfer my settings from the old account to the
new (i.e. microsoft money bank info, verizon wireless card settings). Any
suggestions? Many thanks. J.T.

Hello,

Use Windows Easy Transfer. Using the advanced settings, only save your
settings and the files inside of your user profile. You need to pretend
that your old account is the old computer and your new account is the
new computer.
