Open terminal and write:

Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

In the file that will open find and carefully change the following two lines:

Remove the "#" from the below line:
so it becomes

Change below line as follows:
so it becomes

Save and exit.

Then, to make the changes effective, open terminal again and write:
Code: Select all
sudo update-grub

Important Note:
When you reboot you will not see any grub menu and your PC will boot directly to your desktop. This does not mean that you have deleted your grub menu. Your grub menu is still there but you have hidden it. If, for any reason, you want to see it again, next time you boot you must press and keep pressed your "shift" key, and your grub menu will appear!
If you want to set it back as it was, just undo the above two changes on the grub file, and update grub.

This no longer works with Zorin 9.
Do you have any idea how to configure this with this new version?
Thanks in advance
