Create a System Restoration Point on Windows 7

Appearing on Windows XP, restoring the system allows you to return to an earlier Windows state from backup points. These restoration points are created automatically or manually, as we often recommend before any action deemed unsafe. So here’s the creation method for Windows 7.

To create a new system restore point, enter the first ones in the Start menu search field.

If you prefer, you can also access it via the System properties of Control Panel.

Here we are now in the tab System protection Windows 7 — very similar to Windows Vista.

To create a new restore point, simply click on the button Create...

Now enter a name for this point — for example, Backup before bidding, then do Create.

Wait for a few moments, the time that Windows creates this famous restore point.

A dialog box informs you that your point has been created. So click on Close.

Although system restoration points will not solve all of your problems in case of worries, the fact remains that this feature deserves to be better known and, above all, better used.
