Is it possible to set up a forward on a gmail account without knowing the password if logged into the account ?

User can’t remember Gmail password BUT has the account working on a laptop

Eventually that laptop will die

Is it possible to add a forward all email to another address in the mean time to be covered for that eventuality ?

* totally impossible to retrieve password - we have tried everything !

Forward possible to a new gmail account and we will store password this time - it’s  possible ? Without knowing password ?

Thanks !
