PBI Developer Left...Where do I start?

Our sole PBI developer left and now we have requests for report changes....where do I start?  I have access to his laptop with his login credentials. I located some *.PBIX files but not sure if they are the active ones. Pretty sure we had a gateway installed.  My only exposure was when  I was asked write the SQL queries he would execute with ODBC.  I'm trying to work backwards starting with running the report the users are asking about and going from there.


I was just given a link to the report
