These are my current settings, what I want is to hide the grub menu at boot and only show if a key is pressed and the splash screen should appear. How would I set the settings to do that?




GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"





GRUBCMDLINELINUX="rhgb quiet splash resume=/dev/sda3"

set timeout to less than 10 seconds. your choice as to how low, but would not suggest 0, just in case you do need to catch it sometime, to add a commandline option.

sudo vi /etc/default/grub

change grub timeout to your desired value, save the change

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

if doing from commandline seems daunting, install grub-customizer with

sudo dnf install grub-customizer

It will give you a GUI grub management, and allow other neat features such as custom images and fonts.
