How to Choose a Default Operating System to Run at Startup in Windows 10?

If your PC has two or more operating systems installed in your computer, then one of the operating systems is chosen as default. This means one of the operating systems will start booting automatically after the time of wait elapses, even if you have not chosen any operating system. So choosing the default operating system is very important. If you use a single operating system more often, then set that OS as your default OS. The following tutorial will help you choose default OS to run at Startup in Windows 10.
