    Copy settings between accounts


    When I first started using Win8, I was away from my company domain, so created a local account and set it up the way I like it, i.e. start screen, taskbar, desktop etc.

    When I got back onto the domain, I had to create a new domain account, which means I'm now back on the default settings. I've copied the folders from the "user" folder across from one to the other, so I can access all my documents, music, pictures etc, but that didn't copy the settings, recent documents and so on.

    Is there a way of getting all of the settings from my local user account copied onto the domain account, so that I don't have to start setting it up again from scratch?

    Thanks,

    Steve.
