I know that System Restore option is in Accessories in Windows XP, but it is at different place in Windows 7. Likewise, where can I find the System Restore point option in Windows 8?


The article on Exploring Windows 8: How To Use System Restore In Windows 8 gives all the information on how to do a system restore.

There are two ways to access it:

  • either search "System Restore" in the Windows 8 Search bar
  • or select "System and Security" in the control panel, then "Advanced System Settings", then the "System Protection" tab

From here, you can:

  • turn on/off system protection
  • allocate space to system protection
  • create/delete restore points
  • restore from a restore point
