Launcher doesn't see copied projects
I've successfully installed UE4 on both my desktop and laptop computers. Rather than re-downloading the huge sample files twice, I copied the downloaded files in \Unreal Projects over to my laptop. The problem is, as soon as the launcher loads, it wants to immediately download the ContentExamples (3GB) again. In the Marketplace tab, it shows them all as 'free' instead of installed, and shows nothing in the My Content list.
How can I get Launcher to re-detect the content that's already in the \Unreal Projects folder?
The new version of the launcher that was released today should fix this. We've introduced a new library screen which includes a "My Projects" section which will show you every project you have installed on your machine regardless of where it's saved (as long as it's been opened before by an editor). Let me know if you received the update and if it works for you.

Thanks for your report! I duplicated your process and ran into the same issue. The team is currently working to address the issues people have had with the Launcher, and I have entered a report so they are aware of this issue as well.
