Windows 7: Set computer to sleep, desktop settings disappeared.

30 Jun 2015   #11

Windows 7 home premium 64

Yeah, I used the repair tool twice, first time it created less version, the second time the errors stuck. How do I copy and paste my things to another account? Would I go to computer>harddrive>steam (copy and paste the steam folder into my new account) and steam would work? Thanks.

Go into the folders that you have data in (pictures, music, documents, favorites etc) and copy them, then paste in the corresponding folder inside new account.

Steam is the easiest, where is it installed now? Maybe you won't even need to move it. You may need to copy paste individual games' appdata folders to get your savegames.
