Some good answers here as well....https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-change-the-boot-device-order-on-a-Windows-10-HP-laptop-to-boot-from-a-USB.
I can confirm in the past I have had to hit the delete button on the keyboard to enter the boot menu...good luck.

Sounds like you don't need a dedicated graphics card have a look at the AMD ryzen APUs they are a cpu with integrated vega graphics.

David,  what graphic card would you recommend?
It would depend what you want the graphics card for before a recommendation could be made.

I have just done a pc build parts selection readying myself to replace my 7 year old self build pc. using this site https://pcpartpicker.com it will tell you if it's compatible .Then went online in uk and found cheapest place to get various parts CCL normally worked out the cheapest with a couple of bits from Ebuyer who have excellent service.I went for an AMD Rayzen 5 2600 cpu which is plenty for what I want.

My current pc build is 8 years old so I'm thinking of building another one to preempt this one failing and have a few questions.I'm currently dual booting between Mint and Windoze but i'm getting annoyed with this and I can never get wine to play properly so i'm thinking Vm.So run windows within Linux VM and was wondering would a SSD of 500gb be enough or go for I Tb hdd?.I dont store a lot of stuff such as music or videos just mainly photos and docs.
I was even going to try out Vm on the current pc to make sure it will run the windoze programs or is the no need,as everything will run as if on a Windoze pc.
Thanks for looking.

You can also set the length of time to keep the snapshot that timeshift makes of your system in the settings, also you can limit the amount of space Timeshift uses.

Thanks for the article Keith but I'd already read it and the work around isn't particularly informative with instructions and talks about xorg.conf which mint doesn't have and having to create it and mainly talks about doing this for nvidia.Mine is an AMD radeon and haven't got a clue how to do any of this.Think I'll stick to just plugging the mouse into front of  pc when needed.

I have recently connected  a kvm switch so I can switch between cctv and pc and everything works ok in Windozzze 8 but when I switch to Mint 19.3 the keyboard works but the mouse doesn't,can anybody help?
Yeah Rich think yer right just charging for usb and as you said easy enough to create bootable usb and install even for a novice.
My question is why are they selling it? it's open source!
I currently have dual boot but mainly use Mint.I've reinstalled the dual boot a few times because of partitions not being the right size in Mint and have never had any problems.
just popped on as I hadn't been on for a while and saw the very sad news about Mark.Although I haven't been using this site for long he was always here ready to help anybody with their questions, I can say with certainty that he will be greatly missed.
