If I am about to make changes that might crash my whole operating system, would it be wise to create a Windows 10 restore point, and how would I do this to ensure that the restoration will complete successfully
To create a restore-point in Win10:
- In the task-bar search box ("I'm Cortana...)
- type in "Restore"
- Popup menu shows "Create a restore point", click to select this
- The System Properties dialog box show up - System Protection tab displaying
- Make sure the C drive protection setting is ON.
- Click on the "Create..." button to create a restore-point. Enter the name of the restore-point and select Create.
To restore to a restore-point (AKA rollback your system) - Same steps as before. - Instead of "Create..", select "System Restore..." button - Select the restore-point you want and restore.
Typically, you should create a restore point before installing any not well-known software, drivers, etc. Any suspicion of malware or ill behaviors (system crashed, slow, etc), you should use the restore-point to rollback the system.
