Are you tired of facing different problems on your computer? Maybe viruses caused problems, or Windows could have slowed down a lot over time, seemingly for no reason at all. Fortunately, System Restore can be of great help in solving your Windows 11 problem.
Windows 11: How to Activate and Use System Restore
System Restore works by undoing any changes and reverting your computer to its last working state. This tool aims to solve problems “going back”. That is, to a point where the error did not exist. It’s a great way to fix file corruption or repair damage caused by malware.
Reset to Windows, on the other hand, clears all custom settings and resets everything to default settings. It is often the last solution when nothing else has worked.
System Restore creates images of your Windows PC whenever a change is applied to the entire system, be it to the registry, drivers or programs. They are called restore points. If you change your installation, you can restore Windows to the way it was up to the date and time of the restore point. This is something really very simple.
Please note that System Restore is not a proper backup tool. So it does not affect our personal files and data. So it only concerns system files like registry, drivers and boot settings.
But isn’t all this automatic?
Even Windows 8 was. However, starting with Windows 10 it is necessary to activate this function automatically. The functionality is silently hidden in the old Control Panel, and in the case of Windows 11 you won’t find it in the renewed Settings app.
how to activate
First of all we have to go to the search of the Microsoft Windows and write Restore. On the right side, just click Open.
In the meantime, a window relating to the system properties will appear. If you see that the protection for the main disk is disabled, click on it and then on configure.
Then just select Enable system protection. Then click Apply and then OK.
reset the computer
To restore the computer to a certain point is equally simple. We just have to go to the same section again and then click on System Restore. Next, we have to choose a restore point and then click on Next.
If your issue is not resolved, consider reverting your Windows to an older restore point.
