    Thank you for a simple and elegant tutorial. Especially for people like me, who only uses a PC for the tasks it is programmed to do rather than someone who wants to change the performance of the machine. I have been around computerised work settings for over 40 years and owned PC’s with every version of MS since XP. I’ve finally had enough with the W10 version. I have very basic needs and now use my modern PC only for photos/playing DVD’s and word processing (an essential use). Can the basic installation cope with my requirements please or will I need to add to it (e.g. a Microsoft Office equivalent such as Libra Office)?
