Adding SSD to laptop
According to the Crucial website, this SSD is compatible with my device: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07G3YNLJB/. My laptop is currently quite slow to boot up, and slows down significantly when I'm doing the above tasks all at once. Given that I don't game or do things like video-editing, I'm hoping an SSD and additional RAM will be all I need to fix this, rather than buying a new laptop; feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
Can someone kindly take me through how I would go about installing this SSD? It's not so much the physical installation part that confuses me--though tips on that would be great too--but more about how I'm supposed to configure the system to boot up on the SSD, and where I'm supposed to keep my files that are currently on my HDD. Any resources would be great. Thanks very much.
