Hiyya blue mate I just go to Computer > Open> Users > the user - find the program and right click > copy files / folder you want > go back to Program files say x86 for example > right click on the Program files and paste

It will say you need admin permission and if you want to take it out again just right click on that entry and delete.

To pick out the individual users you should have them listed do the same as above only just from user to user as required.
