The is on behalf of my bro in law


I have an iMac computer and I could do with being able to have windows on it to do my payroll programme. If you could help me out at all that would be great. I also plan to put a Microsoft office programme on it and don't know if I do whether I would still need windows. Big differences in prices of the office programmes that sound like the same thing so confused. Any advice much appreciated. No pressure , just if you fancy finding out

What version of Mac OS is running on the iMac?

 

You can create a dual-boot environment using Bootcamp. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201468

With Bootcamp, if you want to switch between Mac and Windows, you'll need to reboot the iMac and log into the desired OS.

 

Or, you can set up Windows on a virtual machine. You can use VMware Fusion (paid), or VirtualBox (free) to set up the Windows VM.

 

If all you need is Office, you can get Office for Mac. Price depends on what country you are in, and which version you want. The Home & Business version is what you probably want.
