Need to change the primary user

Bought my wife an ellipsis 10 over a year ago but she doesn't want to use it so I want to change it to have me as primary user but I don't know the steps needed. Can anyone help me?

Not sure what you mean by "primary user".

You may possibly be able to add a user by going to settings/users and then add a user. The "primary user" will always be the one whose credentials were used to set up the device. Unless you want to factory reset the device and use your credentials to set up the device, you would likely only be able to add yourself as a new user.
