    Once I got this on running right, transferred all my files I need over and connected everything together. Its a real old HP with a 148 GB SSD. I think my grandson 15 yr old has his eye on it. He can tinker with it. I suppose.

    @ rick Thanks for your deliberations. Very valuable, as all the other brothers are. It seems to me that a clearance of MSos is the preferred option. As I'm not keen on it , I can live without it. Can you suggest a program that will swipe it well? I have looked at Ubuntu 10 yrs ago but...

    @captain-sensible . Yes I follow that logic, however time is getting on. If I buy new computer and am forced to accept WIN 10 blindlym whats the difference if I install Linux Mint or Ubuntu without testing it first. I amnot against test running a system. But I like to get there too. I don't...

    I've learned something else, the screenshot I saved is in dropbox and has become a .doxc file not a .png.

    I think I've just learned why it it so difficult to get the screenshots on . its because they come from a different os, microsoft. ev erytime I attach it , it throws it out saying, "this file has an extension that is not allowed" No wonder I am getting this frustrated. I have now got these two...

    So these files should be on my flash drive? And the copies aren't really copies they are shortcuts? Who should understand that. So now I stick the flash drive in and get these files and drop them on the Desktop. yes?

    yes well that's find by me, but I have been all along the slow route. I have the partition ready on my drive, unformatted. However I have no experience with Linux installation, so need to be guided. Come to speak of experience, mine goes back to MS/DOS prompt, dare I say it , 30 yrs ago. I have...

    @70 Tango Charlie Re screenshots. I've taken quite a few, should they be ALL on clipboard? If so I perhaps should try yo learn to copy some down to a file, just to learn the steps. Why do you mention that?? Is not everything on the desktop or are there too many??
