Install grub customizer from the command line by opening a terminal window and typing:

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

Launch grub customizer by typing:


On the GUI that shows up:

  • Click the 'General settings' tab
  • Under 'visibility' toggle the 'show menu' toggle box

To then apply your changes:

  • Click 'Save' on the left-hand side of the toolbar up the top of the GUI
  • Go 'File' -> 'Install to MBR'
  • where is the visibility toggle? it is not working

  • There's no 'visibility toggle'. Under 'visibility' (bold black text) there is a toggle that says 'show menu'.
