Creating System Restore Point in Windows 10
System Restore on Windows 10 permits you to take your PC back in time to undo modifications that may be inducing problems.
Let us go through the steps to configure and use System Restore:
Enable System Restore
By default, System Restore is not inactive on Windows 10, you can follow these steps to enable it.
Tip: You can use “Max Usage” slider to allocate the amount of storage you want the System Restore to use. By default “Max Usage” is set to only 1%.
After completion of these steps, a new Restore Point is generated automatically whenever any important system change such as Windows 10 update takes place.
You can delete “Restore checkpoints” on the same page by clicking the “Delete” button and remove them all. You can only enable “System Restore” on supported devices. If you have multiple drives, it will not be possible to configure them.
Create a System Restore point
A new restore point will be generated systematically during significant changes. Sometimes there is a need to create a restore point manually before changing anything as it might lead to problems if not done correctly.
After completing these steps, if anything goes wrong while modifying the Registry, installing a new application or a driver, you can use the steps outlined below to use the restore point and undo the changes.
Undo changes with System Restore
