Oh geez, I guess I misunderstood when you asked how to get rid of the windows entry or perhaps you have had a major epiphany in the last few minutes, lol.

Anyway, check out this site on grub:

and see a sample on my guide:

(near the bottom)

adding Slack will require you to tell it where it can find the kernel and the name of the kernel. See the docs for more info.
