How to set GRUB to boot Windows by default :)

Yeah so you must dual boot to know what the other side is up to but hey, I use the Windows partition an hell of a lot more than I do my Ubuntu side. But if I',m not near my laptop during the boot up it goes into Ubuntu and the I have fun playing around with Compiz and then I shut it down. Only to forget a second time and boot into the wrong side again :) Any a quick solution is this
1. open a terminal window and type:
gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

2. Then scroll to the bottom, and move the windows entry above the ubuntu entry, then simply save and exit.
