    Bootcamp loads Windows by Default when starting up. How do I change to Mac default?
    How do I tell Bootcamp to load Mac by default and not Windows by default? I don't want to hold down the alt key every time I boot my computer because I use Mac WAY more than I use Windows.

    Help Please.

    In windows go to Control Panel -> Startup Disk and select the OS X folder. Or if you are in OS X go to System Preferences -> Startup Disk
    Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

    Reboot your machine to OS X. (hold down OPTION key when rebooting and select your MacIntosh HD) Once in OS X, go to System Preferences, Startup Disk, and choose your MacIntosh HD as the default.
