    Windows 10 boot menu after Linux Mint uninstallation


    Hi,
    I installed Linux Mint alongside Windows 10 some time ago and tried it for a while. When I decided to remove Linux Mint from the laptop, I deleted the disk partitions it was installed on. Even though Linux Mint is deleted, it is still shown as an option on Windows boot menu when I start the laptop. How can I remove Linux Mint from the boot menu completely so the laptop boots directly to Windows as it used to do? Thanks..

    • Open an elevated command prompt
    • Type bcdedit /enum
    • Locate the GUID for the Linux entry They look like {14105cca-1b7b-11e6-8afe-e38650dc991f}
    • Then delete the entry with bcdedit /delete {14105cca-1b7b-11e6-8afe-e38650dc991f} , substitute in your GUID
