On Windows 10, your system can obviously become suddenly dysfunctional. This can occur in particular following the installation of software, an update or drivers. As a result, it can be very useful to restore to an earlier (and bug-free) version of your system. Which will certainly remove a big thorn from your foot.



Especially since it will not delete your personal files. Only applications, drivers or updates – installed following the creation of this famous restore point – will be erased. As Microsoft points out, restore points are usually created automatically when a new application is installed. But to avoid unpleasant surprises, it is best to configure one manually before each significant change made to your computer.
