    Hi all,

    I want to move all my documents, bookmarks etc from one profile to another.

    What is the best way of doing this taking into account that both profiles are active.

    Kind regards Mark

    I move all items from one profile to another all the time at work, it is so easy even I don't screw it up :p

    Go into My Computer and navigate to C:\Users\<profile1>
    Open another My Computer and navigate to C:\Users\<profile2>

    In each profile you will have folders \Desktop \Documents \Favourites etc and you can just drag and drop the contents of these folders from one profile to the other - job done! :smashin:
    **IE uses the \Favourites folder in your profile for all bookmarks but other browsers may use other areas to store them**

    Mark.
