Thanks Gordon & Tom

I'm afraid that the 40 minutes suggested is rather more than a tad
optmistic e.g.

Items 1-5 inc will each take me some considerable time i.e.

they all involve me far beyond my comfort zone!

But thanks for trying to help

 & how long to do what where when etc please ref Ubuntu.....?

here's the definitive guide:
There's a lot of information on that page.
In Brief:

   1. Ensure you have a Windows Recovery media and have backed up all
   data. (Not that I've ever had anything go wrong, but you never know!(
   2. Download the Ubuntu iso and create a bootable USB stick (or CD/DVD
   - the USB stick is more convenient and flexible IMHO).
   3. Boot up from the USB stick and you can try Ubuntu without making
   any changes to your computer, to see if you like it!
    4. If you do, create free disk space on your C drive using Windows
   Disk management.
   5. The only slightly complicated thing to do is to create the
   partitions - do NOT let the Ubuntu installer do that automatically.

Hope that helps.
the total time to install (depending on your internet connection) should
be <40 mins....including LibreOfice.
