2. 00:00:01:86 / 00:00:11:21 - basically shows you how to change our
3. 00:00:05:30 / 00:00:15:10 - grub okay which is basically the system
4. 00:00:11:21 / 00:00:18:21 - program that does the boot up in Ubuntu
5. 00:00:15:10 / 00:00:20:93 - when we installed it in our previous
6. 00:00:18:21 / 00:00:22:89 - video we showed you that Ubuntu is the
7. 00:00:20:93 / 00:00:25:23 - default so basically every time your
8. 00:00:22:89 / 00:00:27:24 - computer restarts it'll go to the
9. 00:00:25:23 / 00:00:29:69 - default within about 5 seconds 10
10. 00:00:27:23 / 00:00:34:67 - seconds whatever the default is
11. 00:00:29:69 / 00:00:36:32 - ok but as Windows users we warn windows
12. 00:00:34:67 / 00:00:38:90 - to be the one that automatically starts
13. 00:00:36:32 / 00:00:42:50 - up and for those occasions when we want
14. 00:00:38:90 / 00:00:44:48 - Ubuntu to run we can manually just when
15. 00:00:42:50 / 00:00:48:50 - we get to this purple screen just choose
16. 00:00:44:48 / 00:00:51:08 - Ubuntu to be the one to start ok so we
17. 00:00:48:50 / 00:00:53:15 - should show you now how to do that
18. 00:00:51:09 / 00:00:55:23 - it's quite simple first thing you need
19. 00:00:53:15 / 00:00:58:97 - to remember is which number is Windows
20. 00:00:55:22 / 00:01:02:25 - so Windows is 1 2 so basically third
21. 00:00:58:97 / 00:01:04:10 - third on the list that's what we have ok
22. 00:01:02:25 / 00:01:09:20 - in computer terms it's actually 2
23. 00:01:04:10 / 00:01:12:79 - because computers start at 0 1 2 ok ok
24. 00:01:09:20 / 00:01:14:96 - once you log into Ubuntu you basically
25. 00:01:12:79 / 00:01:17:61 - need to go to terminal
26. 00:01:14:96 / 00:01:19:10 - ok we've users before us so it comes up
27. 00:01:17:60 / 00:01:22:10 - if it doesn't come up over there just
28. 00:01:19:10 / 00:01:28:21 - type in terminal and then you can just
29. 00:01:22:10 / 00:01:33:15 - click on it now like windows where
30. 00:01:28:21 / 00:01:38:09 - administrator has shall we say the super
31. 00:01:33:15 / 00:01:41:88 - user powers ok in Ubuntu it's called
32. 00:01:38:09 / 00:01:43:14 - pseudo or su you can also call it so the
33. 00:01:41:87 / 00:01:47:67 - first thing we need to do is actually
34. 00:01:43:14 / 00:01:50:79 - open up an editor of a settings file ok
35. 00:01:47:67 / 00:01:54:47 - the way we do that is run it as a super
36. 00:01:50:79 / 00:01:57:99 - user by typing in sudo and then we type
37. 00:01:54:47 / 00:02:00:23 - in Nano which is the program we're gonna
38. 00:01:57:98 / 00:02:06:26 - be using to open up the file and the
39. 00:02:00:23 / 00:02:11:50 - file is etc' for slash default this is
40. 00:02:06:26 / 00:02:11:50 - the location of it and it's called grub
41. 00:02:11:96 / 00:02:18:74 - and then you give the password right now
42. 00:02:15:88 / 00:02:25:48 - all you need to do first thing is
43. 00:02:18:74 / 00:02:34:12 - basically go to grub default and change
44. 00:02:25:49 / 00:02:38:57 - that to save ok now the way you can
45. 00:02:34:12 / 00:02:43:75 - leave this is basically control okay and
46. 00:02:38:56 / 00:02:48:43 - there X it'll ask you to save the file
47. 00:02:43:75 / 00:02:50:50 - you type in yes okay and it then asks
48. 00:02:48:43 / 00:02:55:09 - you do you want to save it as the same
49. 00:02:50:50 / 00:02:59:28 - name yes and then we're out of it now we
50. 00:02:55:09 / 00:03:06:81 - need to run basically as the super user
51. 00:02:59:28 / 00:03:11:84 - it's update - grub ok
52. 00:03:06:81 / 00:03:16:06 - and once that's done you then need to
53. 00:03:11:84 / 00:03:18:92 - set the default one which in our case
54. 00:03:16:06 / 00:03:21:50 - was the third one on the list so that
55. 00:03:18:91 / 00:03:34:78 - would be two so what you need to type is
56. 00:03:21:50 / 00:03:39:34 - sudo then grub - default - right that's
57. 00:03:34:78 / 00:03:42:88 - actually set set
58. 00:03:39:34 / 00:03:45:43 - - default so it's grub - set default and
59. 00:03:42:88 / 00:03:48:25 - the number he was third but as I said
60. 00:03:45:43 / 00:03:52:06 - computer start at zero so it's the
61. 00:03:48:25 / 00:03:55:81 - second and then you press Enter ok then
62. 00:03:52:06 / 00:03:59:32 - we exit out of this and we'll just show
63. 00:03:55:81 / 00:04:02:87 - you what we mean when we do a restart so
64. 00:03:59:33 / 00:04:05:21 - that's that you start and as you can see
65. 00:04:02:87 / 00:04:08:78 - it's automatically come to the default
66. 00:04:05:21 / 00:04:10:79 - of Windows and it had five seconds to
67. 00:04:08:78 / 00:04:12:50 - startup so this would basically every
68. 00:04:10:78 / 00:04:14:38 - time you restart your computer it would
69. 00:04:12:50 / 00:04:16:27 - take five seconds and then it'll go
70. 00:04:14:38 / 00:04:18:79 - straight into Windows okay
71. 00:04:16:27 / 00:04:21:31 - and for those days where you want to use
72. 00:04:18:79 / 00:04:23:29 - Ubuntu you would just basically before
73. 00:04:21:31 / 00:04:24:43 - the five seconds quickly move the arrow
74. 00:04:23:30 / 00:04:27:57 - up
75. 00:04:24:43 / 00:04:30:57 - on your keyboard to Ubuntu and press
76. 00:04:27:57 / 00:04:33:09 - enter so hopefully this has helped you
77. 00:04:30:57 / 00:04:35:68 - thank you for watching have a lovely day
78. 00:04:33:10 / 00:04:38:18 - and if you do feel this out take a like
79. 00:04:35:68 / 00:04:38:18 - thank you
