Thx for the quick reply. Firstly, apologies for using windows - I need to
switch to Linux!

Do you have any suggestion of a suitable website, that may cover how to do
this? I will look on Google, but I generally find that to be a time
intensive, and low reward endeavour.

Startup difficulties are often the result of a corrupted ,Rdata or .Rhistory
file. These are generally hidden files, so you may need to learn how to
delete such "dot-files" or whatever term is used to describe files that do
no appear on your OS file browser. I don't know where the Windows version of
RStudio keeps these files.
