Windows 7: Shortcut to create a restore point?

Shortcut to create a restore point?

I would like a shortcut or a hot-key on my G15 keyboard to MAKE a system restore point, as I think the way to come to the window where the "make point"-button is, is way to long.

But I can't get it to work . I think I have read about it in this forum earlier, but I have tried to search the entire forum, and either I get 0 answers or I get 14 pages. my English is not good enough to narrow the search, so will somebody point me in the right direction, please? Or give the answer to make this shortcut? TIA

Hello Sven,

You can use this shortcut below to create a restore point quickly. If you're keyboard settings allow you to map a hot key, then you can have it open and run this shortcut when you press the key.

Im not sure of the path to the create a restore point but try this.

On your desktop right click> new shortcut

Enter the path " SystemPropertiesProtection.exe " without the quotation marks

Then next,should bring you right to the screen

Thanks Minataur

Just what I was looking for. I noticed that the shortcut redirect to 32bit create restore point. Will it work if I am on Windows 7 64 bit?

Hello Xymptix,

Yes, they will work in both the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7.

Hello Sven,
there is also a program called 'Quick Restore Point Maker'. Just one click and it generates a restore point. You could put a shortcut on your desktop or taskbar.
There are a few different versions. One where you can name the point and another which adds a right click "Create Restore Point" option. It's very handy, I use it all the time.
