System Restore Guide
If updates go wrong, or after installing a new application/software package, Windows stops working. System Restore can sometimes fix this type of problem very easily!
General System Restore
Most machines should have system restore functionality already as a default, however, most don’t. Those that have a key built in by default have been listed below by manufacturer.
Acer – Alt + F10
Asus – F9
Dell/Alienware – F8
HP – F11
Lenovo – F11
MSI – F3
Samsung – F4
Sony – F10
Toshiba – 0 (not numpad) while turning on, release key when Toshiba logo appears
You may have to press the appropriate key a few times to bring up system restore options, those that have Windows 10 installed will automatically have recovery options. If you can access the desktop then simply hold the shift key whilst you press restart and Windows 10 will figure out that you want to access the recovery options.
Otherwise follow the keys for specific manufacturers.
