✔ Best Answer
"Installed Linux mint 17.2 version with office"

Please be more specific. 32-bit or 64-bit? Cinnamon, Mate, KDE, or Xfce? And why did you install 17.2 when the latest version is 18.3? Personally, I'm an Xfce fan. It's lighter on system resources & would be the best choice for a system with only 2GB RAM. Keep an eye on the Update Manager shield on the right end of the taskbar. If there isn't a checkmark in the shield, there are updates waiting to be installed.

"how do i keep from having to type my login info every time i do anything"

Define "anything"? If you're asking about entering your password for installing or updating software, that's how Linux (security) works. If you mean entering it whenever you boot, reboot, wake from sleep or screensaver mode, it's because you set it up that way during the installation. Here's how to make changes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fm...
