Hi djcand23, welcome to LQ,

Since Windows 10 is there, it must be a 64-bit system UEFI. So, make sure you get yourself a 64-bit UEFI compatible Linux distro. Get into Windows, disable Fast Boot, shrink Windows partition. Then, get into the UEFI firmware settings (aka BIOS) and disable Secure Boot. Then, you're good to go.
