I'm brand new to Ubuntu looking to install it on a flash drive to co-exist with Windows 7 on a Dell Inspirion computer. I've down loaded Ubuntu and the next step I need to take is to "Open the dash and search for Startup Disk Creator." After several hours of searching I can't locate it. Can someone assist?

It seems like you may be following the instructions for creating flash drive from Ubuntu. You need to follow the directions for creating flash drive from Windows. – oldfred Oct 9 '13 at 4:04

The Dash is the menu, the icon in the top left of the screen. Or else just press the windows key and that should open it too!
