I'm visually impaired... so I have 2 accounts on my computer. 1 with super large EVERYTHING, (that cuts off a lot of stuff and causes problems)! And 1 with everything normal size, (so programs actually fit on the screen. When I created the second account, (with normal size everything), I discovered that none of my stuff from the other account was there. I managed to get some stuff there by right-clicking on a program icon or name and creating a shortcut on the desktop... but when I tried to "share" 'my documents,' it didn't work. I thought I followed the instructions. I dragged the 'my documents' folder from the large print account, to the 'shared' folder. But when I opened the docs in the small print account, the docs I thought I shared weren't there.

What am I doing wrong? Maybe I'm not seeing something?

Danke schoen for any help. :)
