Create a regular user account from the backend, logout, and log back in as that new user.  

This is not complex.  Either you are logged in or you are not.  If you are logged in to your Admin account, you see admin stuff.  If you login to a lower-level account you see stuff that account can see.  If you are logged into an account that should see an upload form and you do not, there is a problem.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

front end plugin

is one example of many plugins

I am searching a wordpress website to see if a non user can upload an image

should I google every plugin that has been installed
or search through the php code for the keyword 'upload'

or is there an easier way

I am a beginner in wordpress

No one can upload an image from the front end unless the admin has allowed a method to do it.  

I think you need to rethink and rephrase the question.  This is all over the place and I honestly have no clue where you are going with this.

I am looking at a website where the web developer has left and I can not contact them

how can I see if the admin has allowed a method to allow a non-user to upload an image

there is an upload button for a non-user but this could be in development

the client is not technical and does not remember what the previous developer has (has not) done
