Change Windows 7 Bootloader Timeout

By default, Windows 7 (at least Ultimate) has a 30 second bootloader timer which seems a bit overkill to me. Fortunately there is an easy way to edit this, along with other bootloader settings. Open up an admin command window by going to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt. Right click on the shortcut and select Run As Administrator. Now, the utility we want to use is called bcdedit, and you can invoke it with simply a bcdedit /? to see all of it's usages. To change the bootloader timeout to 10 seconds, use the following:

> bcdedit /timeout 10
