    How do I create a new admin account on the same machine and transfer everything from the old admin account to the new account. I'm talking not just about files but preferences, e-mail accounts, the works.

    Thanks.

    Couldn't you put the items you want to share in the sharing folder? Aren't these accessible to all users?

    If not then a memory stick as a last resort!

    May I ask you why? As stridemat said, putting them to shared folder is one option but you can also restore everything from Time Machine backup if you have one
