How do I set a manual system restore point?
All I could locate was how to restore the system to a previous point.
I want to set a restore point just before installing a printer.

Type the word create in start search box.

Click where it says create a restore point.

Hope it helps.

You are very prudent, you would be surprised to know how many do not take such precautions. You may want to make a system image, put is on an external hard drive and update it once a month, for nearly total protection in case of disaster.

Good luck to you.

Yes, it's possible.
I haven't done it myself yet. But I am going to do it soon.
So, there you go:

Hope it will work.
