So not sure how to ask this. I'm the only User on my pc. Due to a recent issues I found after adding a second user, the problem goes away. So if I want to use my PC under this new user I created, is there anyway for me to transfer everything over to the new one as if nothing had changed aside from the user? For example the desktop under the new user is default. Lots of stuff is missing...etc.

If your an administrator account (which generally you are by default) you can go to C:\Users and than move all your files on your desktop or documents. Into your new account. Or you have move all your files while logged into the first account and put all the files into a neutral folder (like on a second drive or somewhere on the C drive and move it afterwords.
