I decided to try Manjaro XFCE so i dualbooted using Etcher with a usb stick but when i turn off my pc it auto boots into manjaro and there is no option for windows in the boot loader when i press f12 on boot.
How do i swap back to windows 11 preferably without losing my old files?
Apologies if this sounds like a silly question but when you say you dual booted using a USB stick, are you saying that you were trying out Manjaro & you haven’t installed it, or you have actually installed it on your machine? I’m assuming you’ve actually installed Manjaro but just want to clarify.
It’s an easy mistake to make. Firstly, well done for exploring the dual-boot option. It works well for a lot of people. Unfortunately, if you’ve written over Windows then you will need to just get your key & enter it in on re-install. If it came installed on your machine, it is usually on a sticker somewhere. Hopefully you didn’t lose valuable data, have it stored somewhere or whatever.
