Yes, most if not all new distros based on Ubuntu will auto create a Swap File since 18.04 I think? It's hardly used if you have enough RAM so Partitions are no more really needed.

A swap file is automatically created starting with Mint 19. Swap files are more flexible because you can resize them without changing other partitions. There is no need for a swap partition anymore.
If you are installing an older Mint (which you shouldn't be doing anyway), you can create a swap file yourself https://digitizor.com/create-swap-file-ubuntu-linux/

Thanks.
Installation was perfect.

Everything (fonts, etc). is too small in LM. I will check it and eventually open a thread.

edit: found

generally for LM:
Font selection -> Text scaling factor
changed to 1.3

For Firefox:
about:config -> layout.css.devPixelsPerPx
change to 1.3

Even if not all apps are shown correctly.
E.g. Libreoffice panel icons are blurry!
