    Bringing back the Windows 10 option in the dual-boot menu

    I have a problem. I have installed Debian 10 on my computer as second OS next to my Win 10. After this the Debian was my default system to boot into, but I wanted my Windows as default, so I went on and made some modifications after tutorials that I can't remember, and now I couldn't boot into my windows. It disappeared from the bootloader (GRUB). Thanks for the help in advance! :)

    So you cannot boot-up the computer? Is this correct? If so then did you create a backup image and bootable USB rescue stick before doing these changes?

    When you run sudo update-grub cmd under linux it will find the windows OS and add an option in grub boot loader to boot windows.

    As your computer is new I would say you have a UEFI BIOS, and both, Windows and Linux boot loaders, should on the Fat32 partition.
    If you haven't screw up, you will find Windows boot loader and Linux boot loader on BIOS Boot priority and you can set windows as your primary OS.

    If for some reason the command provided by MikeMecanic fails to resolve the issue then please post the output from within Debian of this command:

    sudo fdisk -l
    Lowercase L not 1.

    If needs be, you may have to reinstall GRUB but let's hope all works before then.
