How to create a System Restore Point in Windows 8

A System Restore Point is basically a system protection point that you create in Windows 8 specifying the time to restore in case your Windows gets corrupt. This helps the system in identifying at which point in time to restore back to with saved settings, and is an excellent system protection feature that can help in saving from losses. These restore points are further used to do a system restore on your Windows 8 in the long run. Without creating a system restore point, it is not possible to restore your system and revert any changes made. Here is how to create a system restore point in Windows 8:
