    Automatically booting into Windows from Ubuntu

    Good day! I have Ubuntu and Windows 8 installed on my PC. I mainly use Windows for gaming and Ubuntu for everything else. My question is can I make it so when I click a link, program etc. the computer restarts and automatically boots into Windows 8. Thanks!

    it depends on what your "default" OS is within grub. There's really no real quick way for this happen, all you're really doing is restarting the machine and choosing to boot windows. So that's just simply pressing restart from the shutdown menu.

    There is a launcher for Ubuntu, "Unity Reboot".
    I haven't tried it yet, but it seems to be just what you need.
