Reduce Grub Timeout

  • Customization
  • System Issues

  • You may not want the Grub boot menu to sit for ~10 seconds on every startup.

    There was a menu list file with previous builds of Ubuntu (Grub 1), but changing the Grub menu with the new version 2 is a little different.

    Edit this file as root:

    /etc/default/grub

    Look for this line:

    GRUB_TIMEOUT=10

    Change to the value you want (in seconds), such as 5, save the file, then run

    sudo update-grub
