Import windows 7 desktop and MS Office from one account to another

In Win 7, I created a local account on a machine that has a domain account on it, and the domain account's folder structure remains in place.  The new user is "jimmy" and the old domain account is "tom."  How can I import all of the desktop and MS Office Pro settings from tom to jimmy?  When I go to Control Panel\System\...\User Profiles, the Copy To option is grayed out for every user.  I created a local password for tom and logged in, but doing so created a new desktop.  Thanks.

Use the easy transfer wizard to copy the contents of accounts.

Thanks, but how do I obtain and use Easy Transfer Wizard to transfer account data on the same PC?  Isn't it to transfer between two PCs?

Also, I can't find Easy Transfer on my Win 7 system.

Forgot one step - google on Windows 7 Easy Transfer Wizard download and download the latest version from Microsoft.  Install newest version then follow steps 1-7 above.

Thanks, Jerry.  Perhaps I'm dense, but the only Easy Transfer installer that I found appears to be for 32-bit, and I'm running x64.  Is there a commercial software solution that will handle this as well as my MS Office settings?

Wait a minute...I fount easy transfer.  I'll give it a try and report back tomorrow - it'll take a couple hours to save the files.

Thanks, everyone.  I got everything transferred, although I had to manually copy the Desktop folder's contents.  Now, if anyone can tell me how to transfer all of my MS Word, Access, and Excel settings/preferences, I'll be grateful.  Perhaps a new question would be in order.
