Changing boot order Windows/Linux in GRUB2

By default, the installation provides a GRUB 2 that is configured to first probe for Linux OSs and then only for other OSs. A simple yet quite robust way of changing the order to Windows first and then Linux is the following:

Open a terminal and issue the following commands:

cd /etc/grub.d

sudo mv 30_os-prober 09_os-prober

sudo update-grub2

These commands will make sure thatr the os-prober script (which probes for other OSs, such as Windows) is executed before the script that probes for Linux OSs when automatically building the grub.cfg file.
