Is there a Guide on installing MX on a machine running Win 10?

I read here that many people are having problems with dual boot.
I have a machine left that is running Windooze 10. I need to keep Win though. Is there any guide on how to do it right on a single SSD?

I like using plank and synapse (semantic launcher or albert) in combination.
How do you combine the synapse launcher with Plank?

Re: SMplayer no longer works

Re: Can I use snapshots as a backup? [SOLVED]

Yeah, I 'm stopping dual backup because of this. I lost all my vinyl albums that I had converted to mp3s a while back in Manjaro... Never going to dual boot again If I can avoid it.

Re: Can I use snapshots as a backup?

I would add that snapshot/live-usb also completely removes any anxiety about getting a virus , ransomware or some such. No need to slow down the system with virus-checkers etc - to protect against the remote probability of these things. Is that a common thing in Linux? My drive is encrypted, should...
