  1. Change administrators and Outlook Question

    I want to change administrators on a single person computer which was given to me (Windows 10). How do I do that? How do I find the log in?

    As to Outook, the previous owner still has his email still on the machine. I want to either add my account, or in the alternative delete his and add mine. How do I do that?

    Thanks in advance for the help.
