Transferring from one User Account to another.

I have recently purchased a new PC which came with Windows Vista. I transferred all documents and settings from my old PC (XP), but find I now have my wife's favourites on my page as well as my own while she has none. I am now wondering if there is a quick way to transfer her favourites from my User Account to her User Account, or does she have to individually set up her favourites again? Any help would be appreciated.

This is for XP, bu I guess it will be similar in Vista.

Identify your wife's Favourites (probably in C:/Documents and Settings/Your name/Favourites).

Highlight your wife's Favourites folder/s and choose 'Move this Folder' and use the Wizard to move the folder/s to C:/Documents and Settings/Your wife's name/Favourites.

Start orb/run, type favorites, press return

copy the files in the folder that opens to the `public` folder (start orb/network, when the window opens look in the Folder list on the left hand side for Public)

go into your wife's account, Start orb/run, type favorites, press return

copy the files now in the `public` folder into your wife's favourites folder
