Every time you install software on your PC / Laptop, the behavior of your PC / Laptop changes or tends to change because the new configuration becomes functional and you take some control over the functionality of your PC. Sometimes the software starts having some compatibility issues on the PC / laptop and it doesn't work properly.
To avoid this problem, you need to create "Restore Points". “Restore point (s)” helps our PC / laptop to be at an earlier stage. Put simply, the restore point puts your PC / laptop in a stage where that software has not been installed on your PC / laptop.
Restore points exist as files on the system. A user can create as many recovery points as he wants. All restore points have the date and time in their description, so that the user can know in what period of time they are restoring their computer.
The following steps will guide you on how to create or delete restore points in Windows 10:
