Hi! We use the computer for multiple daily tasks. Indeed, from study, work, leisure, development and more. More and more time we spend using Windows. In addition, this system is usually very stable at the beginning of use. However, as time goes by, it can fail. Or even by user intervention or third parties can be damaged. Fortunately, the system itself provides tools to make backups in case something goes wrong. For example, we have seen how to create and restore a system image. However, today we will see a different approach. Indeed, in this post we will detail how to activate and use system restore in Windows 10.
How to activate system restore in Windows 10.
System Restore is a Windows feature that helps you undo changes made to a computer’s operating system files. The process attempts to return the computer to a configuration at a previous point in time. This is called a restore point. So it is a means of returning the system to a point in time when everything was working correctly. So this method serves as a means of rescue. Now, this function is disabled by default in Windows 10. With this in mind, press the Win+X combination and then click on System.
Once there, please click on System Protection.
In the next window, click on the System Protection tab. Then click on the partition where the system is installed. Finally, click on Configure.
Then you must turn on the system protection. You can also set the assigned disk size for the restore points. Finally, press OK to continue.
In this way, we are ready to create our first system restoration point.
How to create a system restore point.
Once the system protection is enabled, it is time to create our first system restore point. With this in mind, follow all the steps mentioned in the previous section. But this time, please click on Create.
It then assigns a name to identify the point of restoration.
Immediately the system will start to create the restoration point.
After a few moments the process will be successfully completed.
Finally, to restore the system to a previous state, please click on System Restore.
Then select the recommendation point or some other saved point.
Then press Finish to confirm the work. Then wait a few minutes while the process is completed. Finally the system will reboot with the previous configuration
Ultimately, we have seen how to enable and use system restore in Windows 10. From now on you will have this system protection. See you later!
