System Restore on Windows 10

System restore feature on Windows 10 has been particularly created to take a snapshot of your device and save it as a restore point whenever you detect any change. Whenever you come across a major issue
after installing an app, driver or update or after making wrong changes in the system settings using the Registry or some other tool, you can use a restore point to help a device go back to the earlier position and fix the issue without any data loss. 

This tool of troubleshooting is quite useful. However, this option of system restore is disabled by default that means you are required to enable it before you form up any restore points. Mentioned below are some steps that you need to carry out to set up System Restore. Also, here you are going to learn the steps that you need to perform to stop your device from functioning abnormally.

new update. The feature of System Restore is not something that can be enabled internationally. This option is particularly avalable for system drives.

Whenever the changes in the system are detacted, System Restore checkpoints get created automatically.In case, you are about to make important alterations to your system, then it is advisable to manually create restore points.

  • Give a descriptive name to the restore point such as before modifying system update settings with Registry. 
  • Select the button of Create.

Once you are done with performing the steps above, you can undo the changes if you think that you have done something wrong at the time of installing a new app or driver or while editing the Registry.
