First off, you are providing way too little information about your problems. All of them which you have posted so far. It is not that we have the same setup as you and that we only have to reproduce.

Secondly, Kali Linux is a very specialized distro which is used for very specific tasks. Related with forensic analysis including deep research of network communication. Kali is by no means a beginner's tool. Often I see Kali being used by absolute beginners and unexperienced users with the hope this is a magic tool to carry out illegitimate actions.

So if you are unexperienced in Linux and a beginner, Kali is not for you. I can recommend to try a distro focused on beginners, like Mint. Ubuntu will work as well, but tries too hard to mimick Windows.
