I have a Steam account I have used for many years on a desktop gaming computer. My wife started playing Stardew Valley on my account and she's hooked, so now I want to set her up with her own Steam account on a new gaming laptop, so that she and I can each play different games at the same time. Is there any way to transfer her saved games to a new computer? We can enable Family Sharing for her new account. Thank you in advance.

According to the Stardew Valley wiki page, save files are stored at %appdata%\StardewValley\Saves. So, here's a step by step tutorial.

  1. Press Windows+R
  2. Type in %appdata%\StardewValley\Saves and hit Enter
  3. Find the save your wife uses, it'll look like CharacterName_123456789
  4. Right click it
  5. Go down to Send to...
  6. Select Compressed (zipped) folder
  7. Move the created .zip onto a portable USB
  8. Unzip the folder on the new computer
  9. Move the save back into %appdata%\StardewValley\Saves.

    Note if you haven't done anything like this before, Windows might say you need administrator privileges and stuff - just say yes. This is only there because it is a weird place for the average user to go to.
