How System Restore & Factory Reset Work in
While Windows automatically creates Restore Points whenever you install software or apply critical updates, it’s also a good idea to make your own sometimes. This is especially useful when you’re about to make a change to your system and want to make sure you can roll back if needed.
Follow these steps to create a new Restore Point in Windows 10
- Type Restore Pointinto the Start Menu and click Create a restore point. You’ll see the System Properties dialogue with the System Protection tab open.
- Click the Createbutton near the bottom of the dialogue box.
- When prompted, type a brief description of the restore point. Windows will add the date and time, so don’t worry about including that.
- Click Createand give Windows a moment to create your restore point.
You can also change the amount of space System Restore uses on your disk by selecting it from the list of drives and clicking Configure. Drag the slider to set the maximum amount of space that System Restore will use.
