how to disable boot loader screen

Sometimes, when I reset the KUbuntu system, it prompts for the boot loader screen on startup. This is because I used update-grub once.
Could you tell me how to disable it again? I don't want it to pop up under any circumstances

The GRUB's menu is automatically shown if you have multiple OSes installed. Since you did not say what release of Kubuntu, I'll assume it's using GRUB2.

To hide the menu on boot, open your /etc/default/grub for editing as root. Comment out this line:
by adding a # character at the start of the line.
Now uncomment these lines by removing the # character at the start of the line:
Run update-grub and you should be good to go.
