Please help. I downloaded Saucy Salamander onto windows 7 with ease at an ubuntu website several years ago. The Ubuntu computer program did everything and asked me lots of questions along the way? Now nothing seems to work to download 18.04 onto windows 8.1 with a partition. torrents do not work. booting from a thumb drive does not work. Where is the idiot proof website? "ubuntu-18.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso" I downloaded that file onto a thumb drive as instructed and then restarted the computer. Nothing. I hit F12. Nothing. What do I do?

You can't just copy the ISO onto some storage. It has to be placed there properly, using one of the 50 tools that can do it.
