Use Ubuntu to recover Windows Files

I know it's a proven method, but what's the best way of going about it? Plenty guides, but they all seem to go round in circles gathering unwanted Download managers and other crap on the way. I just want to know which Ubuntu software to download and install it to a Flash drive to boot and recover files...

    you don't want the "windows installer" version

    select x86 or x64 towards the right side of the screen, then click start download
