Add 'System Protection' To The Right Click Menu

Windows has a default feature named System Protection, that allows you to undo system changes by performing a System Restore, as well as manually creating a Restore point, whereby you can set your computer back to the time of when It was functioning correctly. Wouldn't It be nice, If you could have these features accessible via a right-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add the System Protection feature to the right-click context menu.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. There are a number of ways to access the System Protection feature, one of which Is to navigate to Control Panel > System and Security > System > System protection. It will then execute, as per the Image below.

From here, you can perform a System Restore, create Restore points and adjust the disk space used for system protection. To simplify access to these features, I will demonstrate how to add the System Protection feature to the right-click of the mouse.

To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and apply the System Protection feature thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Add System Protection.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've navigated to my computer's desktop, right-clicked on a blank area and as you can see, the System Protection feature has been successfully added to the context menu. Let's make sure It's functional, by first clicking System Protection. I'll checkout the remaining two options (System Restore & Create restore point), In the next few steps.

Step Four:

As expected, System Properties has executed. I can navigate through each tab at the top, perform a System Restore and configure and create restore settings and points respectively.

Step Five:

Upon clicking System Restore, It has now launched and If my PC was not functioning correctly at the time of this article, It could revert to It's previous optimal state.

Step Six:

I've now clicked on Create restore point, and It automatically started to create It by launching Windows PowerShell. The process Is rather quick- anywhere between a few seconds to one minute.

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and want to remove System Protection from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove System Protection.reg file, and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

The good thing about this tweak, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry, thus leaves very little to no room for corruption. Moreover, the change can be reversed, just as easy as It Is to apply. Although Windows creates scheduled Restore points every ex-amount of days, I strongly recommend to periodically create them yourself as per Step Six above.

Do note that the System Protection feature, Is not available when right-clicking a blank area In File Explorer. You must navigate to your computer's desktop to access It.
