"Restore Points" Question


Regarding "Restore Points"

Could someone please summarize what is actually saved with a Restore Point.

And, more importantly, what is not ?

e.g., are WORD documents restored ?
Programs ?
etc. ?

Thank you,

WIN + F1 | type System Restore in the search box | Enter key

WIN denotes that key with the weird wavy flag on it.
