I am still a novice, and I am finding the setting far too difficult.

Is there a way (setting) to make the game easier?

Many thanks and best of cheers,

    Not certain what GUI you are using, but here are a few examples:

    If you are using the mac App:
    Stockfish > Preferences > Skill Level Adjust the skill level. The maximum is 20, so chose something less than that.

    If you are using the engine in ScidvsPC / Scidvsmac
    Tools > Analysis Engines Then select the stockfish engine, Click Edit > Configure And Adjust the Skill level in the popup window.

    In command prompt:
    setoption name skill level value 10
    *I used 10 as an example, but you can set it from 0-20 depending on your needs
