Administrator change on inherited iMac

  John Crawford 10:13 19 Feb 2018

My brother-in-law has just died. His old iMac will be taken over by his daughter. Can she become the new administrator? She doesn't want to lose the existing software (including Microsoft Office). Her father's personal files are all on One Drive, so can easily be removed.

Does she know his password - if so she can create a admin account
