    Good day. Not sure if this is the right place to put this or if this has been discussed. Fell free to transfer to correct thread.
    I have a MBA early 2014 model running 10.12.6
    I want to give my MBA to my wife or daughter and I want to remove all my accounts (admin, apple ID etc.) without having to reformat the whole MBA. I dont want to lose some apps that I have installed ( MS office etc) because I know she will also be needing this. How can I do this without having to go through fresh install. Thanks

    Create a new admin account then delete your old admin account. That’s what I did wth mine.

    Maybe to keep it simple, you can just create user accounts for your wife or daughter. That way the only AppleID they'd have access to is their own. And they'd still be able to make use of the apps installed using your account.
