Please see photographs of screen here:

This is 5GB RAM quad-core Win 10 machine I'm installing 20.04 on. I created @100gb of unallocated space in the main Windows partition while booted to Windows, but it's not clear to me that the default choice "Install Ubuntu alongside Windows boot manager" will install Ubuntu in that space.

Would selecting the "free space" as shown in the second photo and clicking "Install now" prompt me for things like "where do you want to do the swap"? Because I've never been able to find anything that gives me to understand how I should do those "Something else" installs.

Do I need to revisit the Windows partition manager and move the unallocated space to the "end" of the hard disk or something like that? Or will the default choice (alongside boot manager) use that 100 gb of unallocated space I created with swap, the grub boot loader, etc.

I'm fine with doing the "something else" step-by-step with photographs of the screen posted here for further instruction.
