On XP,

My Computer > Local Disk (C: or whatever) > Documents and Settings > then open up the folder from the named user you want to copy from, ditto for the one you want to copy to and drag and drop
(which will move it. If you want to copy it, hold down CTRL as you drag and drop)

On 95 or 98 etc (from memory)

From My Computer (or Windows Explorer) go to C: > Windows > Profiles and, as above, open the relevant user files to drag and drop etc

Isn't this the reason for the Shared documents folder? I pose it as a query as I'm a single user of my PC but that would seem to me the logical place for you to lodge any documents needed to be accessed by other users for copying into their accounts.Might be an idea to check in Help re "Shared documents"
