Projects across multiple computers?
Hi, I am trying to use multiple computers for one project. I am using the same account for both computers. But when I got UE4 for this computer, my projects don't show up. How do I fix this or is a usual thing? Thanks

If you want to use multiple machines to develop (either because you have more than one machine, or because you have more than one person working on the project), then you need to share the files. It doesn't matter who you're logged in as, just that the machine has access to the files.
The best way to share the files is through a source control system like Git or Perforce. These will track the changes to all your files as you're working on them, and then you can commit to the source control system. Another machine can then pull the latest content, make change and commit etc etc. The great thing about source control is that it also tracks all the changes, so if you accidentally break something, you can roll the relevant files back to a state they were in before you broke it. Another advantage is that if you do modify the same file on two machines, there is a good process for merging the changes of these files so you don't loose any work.
Here's some information on Source Control in UE4: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/UI/SourceControl
I suggest you use Git as a starting point (BitBucket, GitLab, GitHub etc). Here is some specific information for using UE4 and Git: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Git_source_control_(Tutorial)
And finally, some useful informaiton on using Git in general: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials
Of course, if you dont want to use Source Control, you can just copy the files between your machines in whatever way you want (network, USB, Dropbox etc)
