I have recently got an Intel based MacBook Air 2020 and have installed Windows 10 on it using Bootcamp. So far everything is working ok, however I would like some advice on the following.
When I was first getting everything set up, there didn't seem to be any way of adjusting the size of the Bootcamp partition in Bootcamp setup assistant (or at least not an accessible way). As my Mac has 256GB storage, I assumed it would have automatically allocated half of that to Windows and half to MacOS. However, after looking at the Bootcamp partition in Finder it looks like it only has 42GB capacity, which is of course below the 64GB recommended for Windows. Can this partition be adjusted using Disk Utility or another way without causing harm to the Windows system?
Second, MacOS is set as my default startup disk, is there a reliable way to boot into Windows when I want to? So far I've tried holding down the option key for a few seconds when I hear the startup tone, waiting for about a minute, pressing the down arrow, then pressing enter, but I still seem to end up in MacOS. I also tried just pressing enter rather than the down arrow, guessing that as the drive partitions are labelled "Bootcamp" and "Mac" respectively, the first option may automatically be Bootcamp as it is first alphabetically, but both methods still got me back to MacOS. I should also add that I tried both methods a couple of times with the same result.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance :)
