Hi

 Having used Reflect for the first time today (and what a great experience it was) I now have the Macrium Reflect in the boot menu..

 When I start now it shows me both options, Windows 10 and Macrium... How do I set it to just boot to Windows without asking?

Other Tasks > Create Rescue Media > Click on Windows Boot Menu > Select "No Boot Menu"

The next time you boot the computer, the option will be gone.  You can always add it back using the same sequence.

I may just remove it, it is a pain to have to choose each time lol  if it could just boot straight to Windows that would be OK.

Thank you Smile

You're very welcome!  MR is a great piece of software and has saved my bacon 2 or 3 times over the years. I remember my first restore.  Booted into the rescue environment, started the process, fingers were crossed, sweat running down my forehead, and picture-perfect results!  I felt like I'd won the lottery.

Lol...yep that was me this morning Smile talk about panic, I was amazed how quick and easy it was to do..great software and well worth the £47 it costs..

Had it for a couple of years but never needed it, updated to Windows 10 v2004  and had major issues with boot up and shut down other than that it was OK, took up to 5 mins to start or shutdown..
I tried the roll back in the past and that failed so I always delete that after an upgrade, besides it took 25 mins with Reflect a lot less than a roll back and it works perfect..

For me, using it the first time to restore my computer was a great confidence builder.  Be sure to keep your rescue media up to date and test it occasionally to make sure you can see all your images and disks.
