How To Easily Change Your Dual-Booting PCs Default OS


I love Ubuntu, but there are times when you just need to use Windows. The GRUB boot manager that’s installed with Ubuntu is more than happy to leave it the default OS. We can easily change this with some help.

I hate walking away during after restarting my computer only to come back and find that I’m in the wrong OS. Linux is, among many things, about choice, so It’s funny how Ubuntu doesn’t really give you a choice of which OS you’d want as the default. GRUB is pretty robust and also really daunting to configure for beginners. Luckily for us, there’s a great GUI-based tool in Ubuntu’s repositories: StartUp-Manager.
