How To Restore Windows 10 With Restore Point: Okeforum

How do I restore windows 10? System Restore is a handy feature that takes snippets of PC software, registry, and driver configuration at a specific point in time called a restore point. You can then, if necessary, return your PC to that point in time.


The following is a guide to restore windows 10 that you can immediately apply to restore Windows 10 to the previous point in case of an error that makes you unable to use that windows anymore.





This is the first step to restore Windows 10, namely by using the restore point feature. To use System Restore, you must first enable it and create a restore point.


Go to the search field on your taskbar and type “system restore,” which will bring up “Create a restore point” as the most suitable. Click on it.

Browse and select “Create a restore point”.

This will bring up the System Properties window (which will look a bit dated compared to most Windows 10 interfaces today). You will be in the System Protection tab. If you have never used System Restore, all the buttons will turn gray except for “Configuration”. Make sure your available drive (usually C: drive , When Harddisk Partition) is highlighted, then click “Configure.”


Click “Configure…” to set up System Restore.

Under “Restore Settings,” select “Turn on system protection”. If you wish, you can select the maximum disk space to be used for your restore point; after that, the older ones will be deleted to free up space. Usually, 1GB to 5GB is enough, depending on the size of your hard drive. Click “OK”.

Choose how much space to dedicate to System Restore.

You will return to the System Properties window. We recommend that you immediately create a new restore point, so click on the “Create …”.

Name your restore point in the pop-up window, and click “Create”. After a minute or two, you will see another pop-up that says “The restore point was successfully created”. Click “Close”.

You can name your restore point.

And you’re done! Keep in mind that a new restore point is only created if, according to Microsoft, “you installed a new application, driver or Windows update”. You can also follow the instructions above whenever you want to create a restore point manually. For example, if you are going to do something experimental with your system. (There’s a way for your PC to automatically create a restore point every time it boots, but that involves working with the PC registry; this article will only cover the basics.)



So, let’s say you’ve just uploaded a new game that then spreads ads and other annoying things throughout your system. It’s time to use your restore point to go back in time before you made that mistake.


Go to the search field on your taskbar and type “system restore,” which will bring up “Create a restore point” as the most suitable. Click on it.


Again, you will find yourself in the System Properties window and the System Protection tab. This time, click “System Restore…”


You will get a pop-up window titled “Recover files and system settings”. Click Next.


You’ll get a list of all the restore points that have been created, including the date and time they were created, what they’re called, and whether they were created manually. Select the one where you want to return.
