Making WIndows 10 Default Bootup O.S. on Wubi Computer

How can I make Windows the default startup O.S. on a Wubi computer that features Linux Mint and Windows 10? Thanks very much in advance.

Yes. Thanks.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... boot-entry
Using BCDEdit
You can specify the default boot entry using the /default option. The syntax to specify the default operating system is as follows:


Copy
bcdedit /default <ID>
The <ID> is the GUID for the Windows boot loader boot entry that is associated with the operating system that you want to designate as the default. You must include the braces ({ }) around the GUID, for example:


Copy
bcdedit /default {cbd971bf-b7b8-4885-951a-fa03044f5d71}

Thanks again.
I'll definitely try out your advice when my brother-in-law or his Wubi Windows !0 machine is not so busy.
