    I just started a new account for my wife on our iMac. Before that all our music, photos, contacts, etc were on my account. My question is, how can I transfer the music over to her account and also how can I get her contacts on her phone over to itunes? Thanks.

    Transferring files from one account to another on the same Mac

    You can use your Shared folder:

    1. Log in to the account you wish to copy files from.

    2. In the Finder, navigate to the Shared folder. It is located in the Users folder.

    3. Copy any files or folders you wish to the Shared folder, such as items on your desktop, in your Documents folder, in your Music folder, and so forth. You may be asked to enter an administrator password when copying certain items. Note: To ensure that you copy items (as opposed to moving items), hold the Option key as you drag files to the Shared folder. Depending on item permissions, some files or folders will copy by default, some may move by default.

    4. Log out of the current account.

    5. Log in to the new account (that you are transferring files to).

    6. In the Finder, navigate to the Shared folder. It is located in the Users folder.

    7. Copy any files or folders you wish from the Shared folder to the desired locations, such as desktop, Documents folder, Music folder, and so forth. You may be asked to enter an administrator password when copying certain items.
