Set Windows as Default OS when Dual Booting

When you install a dual-boot of Linux, one of the frustrating things that you’ll immediately notice is that Linux is set as the default operating system in the Grub loader. If you want to change default Operation System instead of Linux, there’s an easy way to switch back to using Windows as the default.

Open /boot/grub/menu.lst,

# nano /boot/grub/menu.lst

Look for default = 0

You will need to change that number 0 to match the Windows boot section. Typically it’s always going to be 4 on a default dual-boot configuration. Change this value to 4, and then save and reboot your machine. You should go into Windows instead of Linux automatically.
