Sorry if this has been answered before but i cannot find a strait forward answered and i'm a bit confused... So i recently installed Linux mint alongside Windows 10 Pro and currently have set so i boot from Linux first and first thing it does it brings up grub so for now i'm pretty happy.. But i'm confused on how i can use VeraCrypt in this scenerio...

So wait.. Sorry but i'm not very well informed about this... So after running this i can install Veracrypt and after putting in the password/pin in the pre-boot authentication environment grub will appear and everything will be like normal?

No.
one way: It is possible to execute EFI\VeraCrypt\DcsBoot.efi from grub to enter password and boot windows.(via grub chainloader )
another: Execute grub from DcsBoot if password is wrong or not entered. See "Actions" in DcsProp configuration. details DcsProp
