Okay, this isn't going anywhere. We're happy to help, but that is not as easy as you appear to think it should be. We're all here just other users of Linux Mint. Just as if you had a car, and we were trying to help you fix some problem with it, that would quickly get detailed and technical if we exchange messages only over the Internet and you have a car for which nobody has access to the manual or what engine it is using and so on. We would ask you for all kinds of details before we could make further suggestion on what you could try. That is not the kind of help you are looking for, so let's end this topic here.
Find a Linux user group, a hobby computer club, or a tech savvy teenager that you are acquainted with and ask them to help you with this. With you being, self-proclaimed, computer illiterate and us probably getting detailed and technical to get you to share information that we need for giving you more help, it will be easier for you if somebody you can meet with in person can help you (so they can do all this finding out of details and technical tidbits). Most Linux user groups are very friendly and helpful.
