Do you have a Timeshift snapshot that you can restore to?

Just in case there's some confusion, I'll toss this into the mix:

Last I knew, Mint still showed Ubuntu on that screen. I just checked the lazy way and this is "Linux Mint":

Grub Customizer_001.png


Code:
lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:    Linuxmint
Description:    Linux Mint 20.2
Release:    20.2
Codename:    uma

Another reason I don't use Grub Customizer, it's 2007 and it's past its shelf life, and diabolically useless for multibooters. If you use it be sure you have a Timeshift snapshot first, because it is tenacious in leaving vestiges of itself on your system.

But on closer inspection I see that the OP has borrowed from It's FOSS, so the output of

Code:
lsb_release -a

would be useful.
