GRUB is the Linux boot loader and should appears when you boot to allow you to make selections of O/S or utilities (see below sample).
Looks like GRUB did not pickup the Win10 UEFI installation. Boot into Mint and run below command to update GRUB in Terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and see if GRUB finds the Win10 boot manager. If that do not work, please run the second command in Terminal and post results here.

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub

Code: Select all

lsblk -p -o +FSTYPE
Mint Mate 19.1. Main rig is HP 800G2 I5 6500 16GB ram, 120GB boot drive, 2x3TB, 1x4TB data drives. Oldest rig is Mate 18.3 on Dell D620 with 32bits core duo.
