How to set Windows to boot as the default in the boot loader

Many people like to boot Windows as standard/default OS in dual-boot setup instead of Ubuntu, so in this tutorial, I will show you that how you can do this:

In a terminal, type this command to display all your grub entries:

fgrep menuentry /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Copy the underline entry – for example Windows 7 in this screenshot.

Edit the /etc/default/grub file:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Change the entry:



GRUB_DEFAULT="Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda2)"

Note:paste the entry you want (including the quotes)

Then type:

sudo update-grub

That’s it, now Windows 7 will boot as default OS:

Hope this will help you!

Please Remember me in your prayers!

Enjoy 🙂
