Swapping is frustrating

I have a simple wish: to swap 1 XMR for some BTC, then swap back to XMR. I was hoping to avoid the extra steps of using a centralized exchange. I thought Bisq looked promising. I installed it on my low-end Win10 laptop, and it utterly overwhelmed the system; I had to power off to kill the process. Even the mouse cursor was out of control. I read posts about how to do an atomic swap. What? All those technical steps, and no guarantee of success? I found []( Looks easy, but not a word about how it works behind the scenes or how much I'll have to pay for a swap. I'm just supposed to trust them?
