su -
mv /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober /etc/grub.d/09_os-prober
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
# or
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg # if you are on uefi system

Use tabs for auto completion to watch if your paths are correct.

It just changes order in grub menu, so it will work only until the next kernel update. After that newest kernel will be at the top of the grub menu, at least until grub2-mkconfig is run again.

Rename /etc/grub.d/30os-prober into 09os-prober and run grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Hi, to set it up once and not have to worry about updating settings later, you have to save the desired boot entry as default one, follow instructions in Fedora wiki:
