    In XP, Windows has this little icon next to the time that lets you boot into OSX with the click of a button. In OSX, I have to click on "System Preference", "Startup Disk" and then "Windows on Boot Camp".

    Surely XP can't be more efficient than OSX! :eek: (Although the Boot Camp proggy in XP was designed by Apple!) :rolleyes:

    Is there a plugin or script or something that will do the same thing in OSX?

    I just want to click an icon and boot into XP next reboot instead of OSX.

    Thanks! :D

    I want it here:

    Hi, I updated the app yesterday so it now uses a menu item:

    You can get it from the link above.

    Thank you, kainjow, that's awesome and certainly beats logging out of macOS and holding down the "Options" key.
