At our April 18th meeting I answered these Linux Mint email questions:

Getting a dual boot Linux Mint default to Windows. I did this by using the Startup Manager under Administrative Tools. Set Winodws to be the default and save.

Automatically log into Linux Mint without entering password. Also under Administrative Tools, click Login Screen. Unlock this tool and set your user name and password and save. You still need password for sudo or root operations.
