    I have two profiles on this machine. Both are administrators. I'm trying to access profile #2's home folders (documents, downloads, desktop, ect) from profile #1 but there is a little red 'do not enter' icon over the folder and the prompt tells me "The folder “Documents” can’t be opened because you don’t have permission to see its contents."

    How can I access folders from both profiles?

    Log in to the other profile and change the permissions on those folders to allow you access.

    Strange. I did that but it didn't seem to work. I'll try it again.
