    Bios settings for dual boot?

    I have not been building new pc for 6 years. My old Gigabyte Intel pc began to malfunction, I suspect it's HDD, probably wear and tear.
    So I went ahead and ordered all necessary parts to build a new pc. My issue is Bios settings, it's all new to me, especially UEFI vs legacy.

    My system details are in my profile. I was able to install Linux Mint and Windows 10 on separate SSDs. I was surprised about using my mouse function in Bios. Nice feature.

    My problem is, when I turned on my pc, there's no boot selection screen as whether Linux Mint or Windows 10 I wish to boot on, it took me straight to Linux Mint.
    When I want to boot to Windows 10, I have to do it through Bios, under boot selection at bottom screen where I just click using mouse on certain SSD with Windows 10.

    My SATA set up: Blu Ray burner is hooked to port 1, SSD 256 GB for Linux Mint is hooked to port 2, SSD 512 GB for Windows 10 is hooked to port 3.

    I have boot disks for both Linux Mint and Windows 10, so I assumed legacy mode would be best after I installed Linux Mint through UEFI while being unaware at first then installed Windows 10 through legacy.

    Since I could not enter boot screen to select which SSD I wanted to boot on that forced me to enter Bios every time when I wish to boot on Windows 10, do I need to reinstall both OS or just Linux Mint on legacy?
    Also which legacy or UEFI is better? I did research UEFI, I'm still vague about it. In case you ask, I avoid overclock as I prefer lastingly reliability and stability.

    Make sure the drive with the OS you want to boot is the first entry in the Boot list.
