Should I just leave the basil in the garden as is,cut it back, or pull it out? I do not know how to show an example with pictures as I am not very computer literate ?

You should cut it back. I never let my basil plants flower. You can dry extra basil for later use. These articles should help https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/basil/pruning-back-basil-plants.htm
