By reading this article you will learn how to restore windows 10 to an earlier date. We recently saw that restore is disabled by default in Windows 10, that is, restore points are not created automatically and you need to manually enable system protection.

You can also manually create a restore point, then let Windows 10 run it at regular intervals during sensitive operations such as installing updates or software. Once set up, you can use one of these points to restore your operating system to how it was on that date.

However, even if it only affects system and software files, doing so can cause problems. It is therefore recommended that you create a rescue disk and / or back up your personal files to an external hard drive. This precaution prevents data loss in the event of a crash during recovery.

So let's read, Windows 10: how to restore an earlier date with a restore point!

Using the Start button or the search bar in the lower left corner find "System".

Click "System Protection" in the left menu.

Click System Restore when the first window appears and Windows 10 displays the available restore points. You don't need to go too far in time, find the restore point closest to the time when your system was stable or didn't have the problem you want to fix.

Windows 10 summarizes and displays the restore date the system will be restored to. Pay attention to the warnings. If you have changed your password since you reset it, you need to remember it. Likewise, save and close any programs you are using before clicking "Finish".

The restore operation takes some time. Once completed, you will be able to undo the reset if it hasn't solved the problem.
