Here's How:
1. If you have not already, download and install the free version of the EasyBCD program, then run it.
NOTE: The free version download is at the bottom under "Download free for limited, non-commercial use". Registration is not required to download.

2. Click on the Edit Boot Menu button, then click on a listed OS that you would like to change the order it's listed as to highlight it. (see screenshots below step 3)

3. Click on the Up or Down button the move the select OS up or down in the list until the OS is listed in the order you wanted it to be. (see screenshots below)

5. The OS will now be listed how you arranged it in EasyBCD in the "Windows Boot Manager" screen now.
That's it,
Shawn

Hello pcrpro,

True, but the program makes it so much easier to do. Expecially for those without much experience in the command prompt.

Thank you for the addition though.
