Introduction

Recently, I've installed Xubuntu 23.10 on my main desktop PC. However, I noticed that grub wasn't popping up on boot for me to show my other system (Windows 10 which I use for some games only). After searching for a while, I figured out that the default settings for grub are set to boot on Ubuntu directly. I'll show you quickly on this guide how you can fix it.

The simple fix

The simple fix in this case is to just edit the file /etc/default/grub. Make sure to add/edit the following lines:

GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu
GRUB_TERMINAL=console

And that is it.
