Dual boot not working...

So a while back I built a new PC, and I didn't have enough cash left over for windows so I installed Linux Mint. Well, I got Windows 10 just a few days ago, and put it on a bootable USB. Then I partitioned my hard drive, and went ahead with installing Windows on said partition, install went just fine, though when I booted up it went straight into windows. So I booted from my Linux Mint USB and ran "grub-install" and "update-grub" from the terminal, It seemed to have worked, but now my PC boots straight into Linux. Any ideas on how to make grub recognize that windows is installed?

First of all make sure you've got backups of your files and data, then try running grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg with root permissions.

Re: Dual boot not working...

Assuming u didnt override the windows partition, u need to click either F2 or F3 or F8 or F10 or F12 or whatever it is your motherboard designer made right when u start the PC u'll get into the BIOS, in there u can choose which operating system u want to boot to
