    I just installed a windows 10 partition on my Mac mini (late 2018, Mojave)
    It works fine, but I can't figure out how to reboot into OSX
    When I try pressing the option key during startup, there is no start-up disk selector screen and it boots straight back into windows.

    I thought there was a utility that could run while in windows, but this does not appear to have loaded.

    Any ideas?

    If you installed all the Apple support software, you should have Bootcamp Assistant in Windows. It’s a diamond shaped icon in the system tray. Right click and choose Boot from MacOS.

    I'm not seeing that icon in the system tray.

    Did you install the Apple Support Software?

    I can't remember it even offering that option. Previously when I've installed bootcamp, there's a checkbox to install the drivers for it, but my version of bootcamp didnt show it. So no I don't think it got installed.

    BootCamp assistant is in macOS, and assists downloading the BootCamp drivers onto a USB stick. You are referring to the BootCamp control panel which allows you to select macOS for the next boot, but you have to install it via BootCamp drivers in the first place.

    Is it possible to download them using another machine (my MacBook Pro)?

    You can use Brigadier for that. It will let you download any version you want to another machine.

    You can also use your windows install to download and install it.

    If you are able to boot into and use Windows, you don't need a different machine.
    Widows EXE file here.
