Two user accounts are on my computer.

I want to copy MS Works word processing file from the Documents ofone user account to the Documents of the other user account.

On the account with the file I rightclick the file, select Copy.
Then I switch Users.
When I go to the 2nd user account and right click, to Paste the Copy, the Paste option is grey and I can't copy.

How can I copy file from one user account to other user account on my computer?

Thanks.

You need to copy them to a shared folder or any folder NOT listed under either user, and then copy them to the other account from the shared folder.

Would you please explain how to do this?
The file I want to copy to another user account is in the Documents directory of the first user account.
After I right click the file and choose Copy, then exactly what do I do?

Or just copy them to a folder both accounts can access like C:\Temp or create a new folder called C:\Our Documents.

You've never created a folder in Windows before? Open the C:\ drive. Right-click and select New -> Folder.

Can you explain in what possible way any of this is useful to the OP? It is totally irrelavant to the question at hand.

But, then you don't know that, do you? And why would that be? Could it be that you posted something here that you did not write and that that would explain why it has nothing to do with the topic?

If this had been a small quote that was relevant, I would have ignored it. But because your post is simply causing trouble, confusing the issue, and is completely unrelated to the problem, it stood out as something that did not belong.

Plagiarism is theft. It is stealing, pure and simple, and is against the law in all civilized nations. You mean that none of your teachers ever caught you?
