Creating a restore point

You can always make it manually as you want by going to the Properties by right-clicking This PC, look for system protection from the task list.

In this box, you will see two sections. The top one has the system Restore Section, the bottom one has Protection Settings.

To create a restore point manually, simply click the create button under the system protection settings.

Here you will have another box popped up, where you have to type in the name of this restore point. You can name it as you prefer and in the way it will make sense to you later.

Under this System Protection tab, if you go to the top section of System Restore, you can click the System Restore button. Here you will find the list of automatically saved system restore point for you.

Keep in mind that during the whole system restoration process only your settings and programmes will be changed, so there won’t be any data loss and your system will restore all the data and settings you had the time of that restore point.
