    Canít pass grub menu to Windows

    Hey so I removed Linux mint from my laptop because it was to slow for it. I forgot to remove grub too so when I rebooted my computer, the grub menu pops up and won’t let me pass. Anyone know how to pass it and get back to Windows? And how to remove grub completely? Please email me at so I get the notification. Thank you

    we most certainly won't email you.
    also congratulations on making it public; is the spam already coming in?

    anyhow, here's a nice search query for you:

    Create a Windows installation media, boot into it, open cmd, and run
    bootrec.exe /fixmbr
    Edit: that's if you are using BIOS, if you are not then the process is harder.

    Doesn't the Grub Menu still list Windows as a boot option. If so, boot into windows then enter the command in the previous comment. That should fix you up.

    Hi, u can also try to boot Windows even if it is not listed in grub.
    Enter the grub command line by pressing c,
    Then insert these commands

    insmod ntfs
    insmod chain
    set root=(hd0,1)
    chainloader +1

    Assuming Windows is the first operating system.
    The command ls in grub will give you the partitions list if it is not the case
