dual booting xp and linuxlite

hello everyone!
I've installed xp and linuxlite on my machine (on diff partitions of the same HD) and I'd like to change the default OS to be XP as opposed to linux for the time being. Right now, it's set to linux. Is there a user-friendly way to accomplish this?
Thanks for the help.

    There is a app called grub customizer, here are some instructions on how to install it
    open a terminal and copy/paste these commands:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

    After its installed it should appear in your menu

    To be honest though you should just boot into linux and get it done and over with as how are you supposed to lerarn if you just use windows now?
    Really the only way to learn is hands on experience and stop letting windows do all the work for you.
    Sure there is a learning curve but the only way to manage it is to actually use it.

    We can easily change this with some help.

    Fire up a terminal, and enter the following command to install StartUp-Manager.

    sudo apt-get install startupmanager

    Once that’s finished, go to System > Administration > StartUp-Manager

    You can choose select default os on the application interface

    System Admin
