How to remove grub boot-loader after Windows 10 ugprade?

I installed Windows 10 Pro, and I like it so much that I've decided to abandon my Ubuntu dual-boot.

Question:  How can I restore the Windows boot loader that was previously replaced by grub?

Suggestion:  It would be nice if the upgrade process would offer to help you with this if it detects another OS in the hard drive (in the same way the linux installer offers to do so).
