Re-install mint


I installed Linux on my laptop without making it dual boot. I want to remove it and re-install it creating a partition for windows. How can I do this? I might add I am not a computer "guru" so make it simple and step by step. I am 80 years old.

    If you reinstall you can overwrite the root and home partitions without affecting anything else. If you chose the 2nd option to install alongside Windows you may have to create separate partitions. If you chose the 3rd option, "Something else", you will just overwrite, checking the box to format that space. Look for a good, detailed guide and follow the instructions. Don't forget to choose the right option for your bootloader/grub.
