    Moving Saved Games


    OK, I'm playing a game named Mosaics Galore. It's a series of puzzles that you master accuracy and speed... the accuracy is easy but the speed is hard. Sort of like a jigsaw but odd shapes. There are about 6 different levels. I started playing it on my desktop (Win 8) and mastered a whole level perfect score, then my desktop crashed and I had to send it back to the factory for a new disk drive. During the time it was at the factory I started the game all over on my laptop (Win 7) and mastered two levels with perfect scores. This is not easy. Some puzzles took me doing it as many as 20 times to get it done in like 2 minutes. Very difficult. Now my desktop is back and I want to continue the game on desktop without having to start all over. Laptop screen is smaller and harder to see, when the desktop was gone I plugged the laptop into my huge screen).

    Question: How can I put my saved game from laptop onto an external drive and upload it to my desktop so I can continue the game.

    Someone said it's in a folder called app/data/roaming but I can't find a file by that name.

    I don't have exact answer to your question, but you can go to that folder by opening file explorer and entering in the address bar this:
    C:\Users\<your user name here>\AppData\Roaming

    You have system files and folders hidden, you can change it in the Folder Options, View tab.

    From your screenshot I can see your username is Barb. So, please select the address below with your mouse and press control+c then open file explorer, click on the address bar and press control+v and press enter. You should be there.

    Copy this: C:\Users\Barb\AppData\Roaming
