Share Favorites across different users on the same machine

If you have a dual boot machine like me (I installed Vista and Windows 2008 on one of my desktops in office) and you’re tired of synchronizing your Favorite folders like I was, here’s a quick trick: open the registry editor (as usual be careful!) and set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Favorites and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Favorites to the…
