This is what I like most in Windows 7. There are a lot of things which have been made easier in Windows 7. One of them is creating a restore point, which is quite complex to generate in previous versions of Windows. As the name reflects its function, system restore is one of the great features of Windows 7 that lets you retain the system files to their parent form. Actually system restore points are generated automatically during every Windows 7 session, but it is mandatory to generate a restore point manually when you are going to install additional drivers or about to upgrade your existing file or repair your Windows Registry. It will help you to back-up your system and also it enables you to switch back to its previous version.
Manually Generate System Restore Point in Windows 7
To generate Windows Restore Point manually, follow these steps :
- Click on start menu and right click on Computer, and select Properties from the context menu.
- In the resulting window, click on System Protection which is lying on the left pane of the window.
- In the System Properties window, click on Create and type any name which will let you to identify the Restore Point.
- Now click on Create and wait for some time to finish the process. You’ll get a confirmation message that “The restore point was created successfully”. Finally select Close.
