change boot order mac Need to quickly boot from Mac OS X to Windows? Don’t want to fiddle around in System Preferences or hold down the Option key during the Mac restart to access the Boot Loader? QuickBoot to the rescue! QuickBoot is a great tool that sits in your menubar and lets you easily select boot volumes from Mac OS X to Windows and vice versa. Simply select the volume, reboot your Mac, and you’ll be in Windows. Reboot again and you’re back to Mac OS X (or whatever your default boot OS has been set to).

QuickBoot isn’t perfect though, as the developer points out that QuickBoot won’t work with MacBook Airs or Unibody MacBooks too well, and that operating systems outside of Windows and Mac OS are usually unrecognized.
