PowerTip: Create System Restore Point by using PowerShell


Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to quickly create a system restore point.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to roll back the settings if the changes I make mess up my computer?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Open the Windows PowerShell console with Admin rights, and use the Checkpoint-Computer cmdlet.
           Specify a good description of the checkpoint and the restore point type, for example:

Checkpoint-Computer -Description 'everything fine' -RestorePointType modify_settings
