Merge shared account data to Domain account

So there is a user in a company that I am starting to admin for, they currently use a windows machine with a shared domain account. I am looking to migrate this person to their own domain account. What I need to do for them is make sure all of the settings and files are on the new account. This includes everything that is on the desktop, and they want it to be in the exact same spot as the shared domain account. The user is not very tech-savvy so they can't find files or documents very easily if they are not in the exact same spot every time. So basically I need to copy over the original shared user accounts files, settings, and layout onto the user's domain account. Would really appreciate any insight into this.
