Go into Documents (or your steam file directory), go to "My Games", go to "terraria", and copy+paste the files for chars and worlds onto a flash drive.

Then, move it to another computer's directory and put it in the folder you took it out of.

If you're talking about Steam account, then that is impossible as Terraria saves are saved into your user documents, regardless of which Steam account you're using.

If you're talking about user accounts (the one you use to log onto your PC), then that's possible.

To move your savefiles from PC to PC, or user to user (assuming Windows), go to your My Documents and look for the my games folder.
Inside that folder, you'll find several folders for some of your various games, for example:

%userprofile%/my Games

Now, copy the Terraria folder and move it to another location that is not specific to your account. On Windows, you can simply move it onto another disk (ie. another partition or a USB drive) or into the Public User folder at:

C:\Users\Public

Now, log onto the account (or place your USB with the Terraria save folder into another PC) that you want to move the save to, and simply drop it back into that user's my Games folder.

Replace/Delete any existing files and you should then be good to go.

Remember as always, DO NOT REPLACE OR COPY SAVE FILES WHILE THE GAME IS RUNNING, or you may risk corruption.

Yes, you have to find the terraria folder and make a duplicate of your data. Then move the duplicate to your other account. I'm not sure how to do it, though. I think if you search up "how to downnload a terraria map you might get some instructions on how to get to those folders.

PS this probably was the least helpful answer on this entire website xD

    This seems like more of a comment than an answer. I appreciate you trying to help, but if you're not sure then it's best not to post an answer. – two bugs Aug 4 '16 at 17:15
