Guess Who? Back again
#1
Hey I'm back boys!!!!!! More problems....
You know when you log off you can switch users...well when I switch for some reason I can't pull any information into the other account...why is that? I put something into a notepad and I tried to open it up when using the other persons account and I couldn't access it...I hope I described it good enough for you to understand...
Put your smart brains to work and give me my instructions....
Thanks

how have you set your accounts up :question:

the main account ( yours ) should be set to system admin with a password.

all other accounts have to be set as guest.

to see all files from other user's you will need to log in to the admin account.

go into control panel , user accounts.
call up the admin account and add what ever password you like.

I have yahoo mail and it does open in the same window you are looking at the only difference is i have a list in the left hand side once i read the mail i can click inbox and go back to where i was.
if you click back in ie you will have to log in again.
also click the options at the top of yahoo mail and check under General Preferences
just in case you have it set wrong.


of corse there is a easy way out of this,
right click the mouse on what ever message you want to read and select open in new tab or new window depending on what browser you are using.

when you go to log into windows does it give you a list of users ?
is the admin account listed ?

the admin account is the main account on your pc.
you should now be able to pull what files you like from one account into the other or copy and paste what you like.

its only the admin account that can do that it can not be done by a guest or someone with limited access.

your welcome purple ,
the whole point of setting the site up was to help people like yourself.

i really don't need anything at all , just knowing that i have helped someone is enough for me.
i hate the idea of people spending alot of money on a computer to find there is no end support or websites that will rip you off for very basic help like finding a device driver.
