Windows 10/11 allows you to move files and folders between accounts. You can use either method to do it. Method 1 requires you to log into both accounts simultaneously. This makes it difficult because you must remember what you did on each computer. If you forget something important, you could lose access to your files.
There are many tools available to help you transfer files between computers. Here are some of the most popular ones:
WinSCP is a free FTP client that supports SFTP and SCP protocols. It lets you connect to remote servers and upload and download files.
Cyberduck is a cross-platform FTP client that supports SFtp and FTPS protocols. It offers drag & drop support, multiple connections, and a built-in web server.
If you want to use Windows 10 without logging into your Microsoft account, you’ll need to create a local account. This guide explains how to do it.
When you switch between accounts, it’s easy to forget about what you had open in the previous session. You might want to keep some of those files handy, though, because there are several ways to move files from one account to another. Here’s how to do it.
1. Copy and Paste
If you just want to copy and paste files from one account to the next, simply press Ctrl+C to bring up the context menu and select Cut. This works great for small files like images, videos, and music, but it won’t work for larger files like spreadsheets, presentations, or documents.
2. Drag and Drop
You can drag and drop files directly from one location to another. To start, make sure both folders are selected. Then, hold down Shift while dragging the file over the destination folder. If you release the mouse button, the file will automatically be copied.
3. Share Your Documents
Another option is to use Microsoft Office Online. You can even add a personal note to the link. Once you’ve done that, you can email the link to yourself or anyone else. They’ll be able to view the document without having to install anything.
There are many ways to move files from one account to another. You can use a USB stick, a cloud storage, or even email it to yourself. But what happens if you want to transfer data from one account to another on the same computer? There are several methods to do this. Let’s take a look.
