How to System Restore and Factory Reset in Windows 10

This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update, and when you create a restore point manually. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.

  1. Select the Start  button, type control panel and then choose it from the list of results.
  2. Type recovery in the Control Panel search box.
  3. Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.
  4. Choose the most recent app, driver, or update on the list of results, then select Scan for affected programs. You’ll see list of items that will be deleted if you remove this restore point. If you’re OK with the deletions, select Next > Finish. Or, if needed, select an earlier restore point before selecting Next > Finish.

System Restore:

Open Start (or press Windows key + I to open Settings) and in the search box type create a restore point.

Click the matching result, select the drive you want to use to store your restore point (typically the system drive) and click Configure > Turn on system protection. This action activates the system restore functionality.
