How to set up GRUB so kernels other than the latest go to a sub menu?

This is my first post here. =)

I've been playing with Fedora for a while, and it suits me better than xubuntu so far. I use the XFCE flavor.

Is there any way to make GRUB behave more like it did with Xubuntu? With grub-customizer, I could have Windows and Xubuntu on the screen, and all the other entries would go to an menu which I named "Advanced".

I can do that with Fedora, but as soon as a new kernel update comes along, it goes to the top of the list, along with its full name, including kernel version and so on.

to /etc/default/grub and run grub2-mkconfig after every kernel update. Fedora runs grubby to update the grub configuration, and it does not do what you want. Therefore, you have to remember to run grub2-mkconfig, whereas Ubuntu does that automatically.
