If you're using EFI, you don't need to do anything.  Windows and

(Unless windows does something stupid like reformatting the EFI
partition, but it really shouldn't do that and I doubt it would.)

Your last sentence is actually the question.

So: Bill Cunningham: do you still see your Fedora installation in the
BIOS/UEFI boot menu?

If yes: Either tell your BIOS - that is, if it provides this option -
that Fedora should be booted by default - or, if that's not possible,
efibootmgr might be the option to rewrite the BIOS boot sequence.

In that latter case - if you still can start Fedora via your BIOS/UEFI
- you might boot right into Fedora and run efibootmgr from there,
without the need for a Live Linux USB thumb procedure ...

Again: good luck!
