change default boot partition from mint to windows 10


I just installed Mint along side windows 10. I'm new to Linux, but so far I like it; however it will be easier for other users if windows 10 appears at the top of the OS list. Mint is now at the top. How can I change it? Thanks.

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Code:
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
After installing grub-customizer you can change default grub entry from it graphically.

You can also do it manually.

See the following article for how to change the order using both GRUB Customizer and manually.
