If you use the System Restore function in Windows 10 to revert your operating system to the last known stable point when it was working correctly, you might be interested in having the ability to quickly create a restore point with one click. This can be done by creating a shortcut to a command which creates the restore point. In modern Windows versions, it is especially useful because System Restore has been scaled back to create restore points far less frequently, even as low as once a week!
System Restore isn't a new feature of Windows 10. This technology was introduced in 2000 with Windows Millenium Edition. It allows you to roll back the installed operating system to the previous state. System Restore creates restore points which keep a complete state of Registry settings, drivers and various system files. The user can roll back the operating system to one of the restore points if Windows 10 becomes unstable or unbootable.
System Protection, which was introduced as System Restore in Windows Me, is a very useful feature which exists in all modern versions of Windows and allows you to have a snapshot of important system files, installed apps and registry settings. If something goes wrong, you can use this feature to restore your PC to a working state. In Windows 8.1, System Protection is turned on by default for the drive that Windows is installed on. If you don't use it, you can turn it off. Alternatively, you can adjust the amount of disk space used by System Protection.
