Having your Windows PC compromised in any way can be damaging and can cause a lot of troubles. Simple tasks such as installing a new app, driver, or update can create issues with your computer, and you may want to undo the changes you made to revert your PC back to normal. This is where creating a restore point in Windows 10 can be beneficial for you.
Restore Point allows you to essentially save a ‘snapshot’ of your computer at a given moment which is then stored as a restore point. If your computer Somehow starts working awkwardly or becomes laggy, you can then return to this restore point that you saved and your PC will go back to how it was at that time.
Importance Of Restore Point In Windows 10
Most of us have encountered a problem here or there with Windows before and wished that we could undo changes we made and bring back our PC to how it was before. By creating a restore point on a Windows PC, you can effectively bring back your computer to a previously saved state if you think that its current state is compromised.
So you are basically going back in time to how things once were instead of your PC operating in its current capacity that you’re unhappy with. It should be noted that if you have installed any programs after a restore point has been created, that once a restore is performed those programs will not be there anymore.
