    The person who started this thread wants to do a similar thing. You can learn from the mistakes of others. Note the information provided by efflandt in post #7

    You will need to make the edits using a text editor that has been loaded with administrator privileges. When I edit system configuration files I use Gedit and I start it with this command

    Code:
    sudo -H gedit
    We can load Gedit and load a document at the same time with something like this.

    Code:
    sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub
    You will need to add the lines

    GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
    GRUB_SAVEDFAULT=true
    to this

    GRUB_DEFAULT=0
    #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
    GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
    the # symbol tells grub to ignore that instruction

    and then run

    Code:
    sudo update-grub
