Removing dual boot when you have deleted ubuntu already

Hey folks!

It happens at times that you have two OS running on your laptop say Windows and Ubuntu and you have been successful in establishing dual boot for them back in time but now when you don't need one OS and deleted (say Ubuntu) forever, still dual boot option appears, do you want to get rid of that?

Here is a simple technique I discovered.
 Just run command prompt as administrator (right click cmd and select run as administrator).
Then typr these commands:

>bcdedit

This willl display a list of your boot options, now find the identifier for Ubuntu. It would be enclosed within curly braces.
Say your identifier is {GUID}. It can be a lengthy string too.
Now type:
>bcdedit /delete{GUID}

Operation successfully completed. This marks the end of dual boot.

Hope that helps!
Stay cheered.
