Add Create Restore Point On Right Click

In the event something goes horribly wrong with your computer, to the point of losing functionality to some degree, Windows has a utility named System Restore, whereby It allows you to revert your operating system to It's last working state by way of using what's called a "restore point". This Is a somewhat hidden feature, so In this tutorial, I will show you how to add the "Create Restore Point" option to the right-click context menu.

So what exactly Is a System Restore Point? Put simply, each point Is (usually) automatically created by Windows every so often, and also created when you Install drivers, applications and perform a Windows Update. A given Restore Point Is a snapshot of your operating system, and should your OS become corrupted, you can restore It to an earlier date of when It was functioning correctly by using the Windows System Restore utility.

This can be accessed by entering System Restore In the Search bar, and then clicking on Create a restore point. Here's a visual of what to expect.

As you can see In the Image above, there's the System Restore option, whereby you can select a particular Restore Point, or you can create one by clicking on that very button, namely Create. That's what this tutorial Is referring to- adding the Create Restore Point option to the right-click context menu. You can then create them with a few clicks of the mouse.

To do this, I will be using a Registry file that will add the entries to the Windows Registry, and enable the option on the right-click thereafter. I've provided the download links to the Registry files, at the end of this article. This Is a very simple process, so let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice, then double-click the Add System Restore.reg file. A message will be displayed, asking whether you wish to add the entries to the Windows Registry. Click Yes.

Step Two:
You will now see a message, confirming that the entries have been successfully added. Simply click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
I've right-clicked on a blank area on my computer's desktop, and as you can see, the Create Restore Point option Is readily available. I will now put this to the test by clicking on It.

Step Four:
The Command Prompt will open, and begin to manually create a Restore Point. This only takes around 10 seconds or so.

Step Five:
Let's have a look at the System Restore Point that was just created, by navigating to Control Panel > System and Security > System. I've now clicked on System Protection as shown below.

Step Six:
I've selected the System Protection  tab, and then clicked on System Restore.

Step Seven:
Make sure the Choose a different restore point radio button Is selected, and hit Next.

Step Eight:
And here's the new System Restore Point. It's Identified by Its description of Manual, and the Date and Time match with when the above tweak was applied. Should anything go wrong with my computer, I can restore It to this Restore Point.

Last Step:
If you wish to reverse the change by removing the Create Restore Point option from the right-click context menu, double-click the Remove System Restore.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:
In the event your PC corrupts, as a safeguard, It's of the utmost Importance to have at least a couple of System Restore Points available, whereby your operating system will be restored to an earlier date of when It was functioning correctly.

To the contrary of what you read online, Windows does not always automatically create Restore Points, hence having the option readily available on the right-click context menu Is a must.
