Hi asterias14, welcome to the Linux Mint forums
Thanks for joining the forums! Give yourself time to get accustomed to Linux; you didn't know everything about Windows when you started using it either. There are lots of knowledgeable forum members willing to help out in case of problems or doubts, so please post problems or doubts to the Newbie Questions section of the forum to get help at your level
You can also search the forums, a lot of questions have been answered before.
Be sure also to check out the Community
website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews), and the Cinnamon Spices
website for adding themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon (and check out the Cinnamon Extras
package, which will install a lot of these for your automatically). If you haven't installed Cinnamon, see here
the most recent update for a teaser.
You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.
@Rosemarysos: though it is customary to post your own introduction, also welcome to you
