games – How do I get steam to properly install and actually open steam?

So I am very new to Ubuntu and Linux and somehow scrapped by, since I am a PC player since December of last year. I used steam on my little garbage Lenovo with Windows 10, but after I got my I5 HP, I had to run Ubuntu because the hard reset caused the windows to break when logging in. While I was trying to steam, I used Ubuntu Software AND the terminal, but when I find the desktop / application icon, nothing happens. it will not load, it will not prompt, it was literally everything that did it after installation, it has been updated. Can someone please help a noob and let me know what I can do to keep him going? Many Thanks.
