A restore point in Windows PC can be a great way to ensure you aren’t affected by sudden accident to your computer. This tool takes a snapshot of the current working state of your computer, which you can refer to whenever you run into a problem while using it. This means that you can always roll back to an earlier working state of your PC.

This guide will walk you through how to do so on a Windows 11 or Windows 10 PC – The process is similar for both versions of Windows.
