GRUB and not got permissions
I went to change the menu file to make windows boot first. It won't allow me to, and this is a problem I have found in Ubutnu after using it like 10 times, because I don't have the correct permissions.
"You do not have the necessary permissions to save the file. Please, check that you typed the location correctly and try again"
The location is fine, don't worry about that. I can't change any settings in the system menu and just in general get told I can't do anything because of my permissions.
Anyone know what is going on?

One must have root privileges to edit files outside his/her home folder (/home/user_id). One can gain root privileges through sudo in Ubuntu.
sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
Press Alt+F2 and type this
gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
Check this link on sudo too.
