Easy way to Create a Restore Point - advice please

I like to Create a Restore Point from time to time while I am "playing with" the pc. I have managed to do this, System Properties>System Protection> Create tab.
However it seems a long convoluted route to find my way to getting to press the Create button.
There must be a more straight forward method.
I'd like something pinned on my start menu.
Any ideas please.
Thanks,

My My, you are too quick for me, ha ha
Dunno what kept you. There must have been at least a minute's delay between my post and your reply.
Such service. Thank You Both.

I have to admit it took me a few goes to achieve the intended result.
I had to read and re-read what to do
But that was my lack of skills not the fault of the instructions.

Thanks again,
