Read this, please: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ad-4175614092/

Why do you 'Need to install kali'??? What is the purpose? Kali is not meant for new users, and their website even says so. It's for experienced users, and built SOLELY for the purposes of network security/pentesting.

If a class, ask the instructor. Or anyone familiar with Linux, to look at your computer.
How did you start a terminal from the GUI if "no" menus/programs?
Does Debian work? Try a pre-installed Kali VBox from osboxes.org
Basic troubleshooting/problem-solving skills are advisable for tech work.
