    I just made the switch to mac a few weeks ago, and I'm loving every second of it. In my opinion, macs are simply superior.

    However, I still have old programs that run in windows so I dualbooted using bootcamp tonight. It just finished like, fifteen minutes ago.

    Now, whenever I turn on my computer it automatically boots windows, even if i was in the Mac OS last. How do i set it so I automatically boot mac? i don't want to have to hold Option everytime I boot, and I know that I won't be running windows that much, just when i need certain programs.

    Thanks for your help.

    System Preferences, Startup Disk, pick OS X.

    Oh, and search, please. :)

    yeah sorry, I figured it was a frequently asked question, but like, i didn't know the right words to search, I tried a few combinations, gave up and posted.

    thank you though!

    If you want to do it from windows you will have to go to the boot camp menu and select osx as the default startup disk and restart.
