How do I transfer files from one user to another in Windows 10?

"I just changed the settings on my computer so that there can be multiple users on it. My problem is that the new user I created has basically none of the various files and applications that are on the default user. How do I transfer those files from the default user to the one I created?"

It's common to see that families or colleagues share a same computer or laptop. To protect the privacy of each independent member, it's good to make their own user account. Only with a login password or a granted permission from user A, user B can get a free access to user A's personal files, customized system settings and installed programs.

However, things can be totally different. For example, in order to fix a corrupt user profile, one of the most suggested ways is to create a new account. In this regard, people have to take a further step to move all necessary files and program from the old user account the newly created one. But how?
