The System Restore Point is a specific state of a system that can be used to restore a system in the case of system failure at a previous state when the system was working fine. Let’s understand the scenario when the System Restore can help us to use the system in the case of system failure. John was working as a Desktop Technician for an organization. His system was working fine on Monday; however, when he install a software on Tuesday, the system started to reboots several times in a day. However, he had created a restore point before installing the software. Now, what should he do to resolve this issue? The answer is pretty simple: by restoring the system in the previous Restore Point when the system was working fine (I mean on Monday).
So let’s see how to create System Restore Point in Windows 10 and how to restore the system using the Restore Point in the case of system crashes or failures.
