Simplest way to do is with grubcustomizer

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

You just install that app and I think you will get the hang of it, if not post here and I will show you how.

The harder way to do it is from terminal. See link here.
