Manjaro install alongside Windows 10 => Directly boot to W10

Dear Friends!

I installed Manjaro alongside Windows 10 but system directly boots to W10 if I ever boot into W10.
To solve it, I followed this advice: GRUB not showing up on UEFI pc

sudo grub-install
sudo cp /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/core.efi /boot/efi/EFI/boot/bootx64.efi
sudo efibootmgr -c -d /dev/sda -p 1 -L "manjaro" -l "\EFI\Manjaro\grubx64.efi"
sudo update-grub

After restart everything is all right. Grub shows up and I can select to boot to Manjaro. Then shut down and then boot with Grub again any time.
BUT if once I select to boot W10 it boots and never shows Grub again! My efibootmgr does not list Manjaro again!
The only way to boot Manjaro again is by booting from live USB -> Detect EFI bootloaders -> select Manjaro.
At next step GRUB 2.04 shows up and OSes can be selected. Boots to any OS I select.
The hardware is a SONY VAIO notebook with nVidia GPU.
Please help me to solve the boot issues. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Both Win10 and Manjaro are installed in UEFI mode.

can you boot on iso USB manjaro
open a terminal and report

sudo efibootmgr -v

Thanks guys, this 3 lines (seem) solved the issue in Windows:

    Run CMD as Administrator
    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\manjaro\grubx64.efi

on my machine I went into uefi-Bios and selected the manjaro-installation as first boot-device...
Grub starts Windoofs-Bootloader if selected; no complains at Windoofs Updates until now.
This Windoofs-Tool "bcdedit" I use too.

Partition Table: msdos

For uefi-install GPT is required!!!
How to convert I forgot, maybe not possible
Well, and the manjaro-install has to be booted in uefi-mode too. If mix ---> then no fun.
