Is your PC UEFI ? (in EasyBCD, you'll see Winload.efi as the bootloader)
If so, Windows bootmgr won't allow booting Linux (or legacy Windows like XP).
The only way is for Linux to take control of the boot (as you did previously).
If you're still BIOS/MBR, (EasyBCD shows Winload.exe as bootloader) then bootmgr can load Linux, but presumably your problem is that there's no longer a grub for it to chain to.
For Windows bootmgr to remain in control you need to have installed Linux with grub in the Linux partition, not in the MBR.
When you previously installed Linux you let it put grub's in place of Windows' code in the MBR, and now W10 has reversed that and replaced grub.
You'll probably need to reinstall grub into the Linux partition, (or let it take control of the MBR again) but my use of Linux is about 10 years in the past, so I'm not in a position to advise how to do that.
A web search will probably reveal all.
