I’ve lived in the Randle area for the past 20 years, moving here from Kent in 1999 to get out of the city life and never looked back. I have three children, my oldest daughter lives in Seattle and the younger daughter and son live in Randle. I’m blessed with three beautiful grandkids.

Restore Point Part 2
Last week we talked about the Restore Point in Windows 10. This is the feature that will set your computer to a previous point in time if your computer is having problems that you can’t resolve any other way. An example of this would be a corrupt user profile.
This option should be used sparingly since your computer’s system files, updates and drivers will all be rolled back to the date of the Restore Point.
Here’s how you can check to see if your computer is set to automatically create Restore Points.
Open Control Panel. If you don’t know how to access it, you can type “Control Panel” into the search box on the bottom left of your screen. Choose “System and Security”. Select the third option down, which is “System”. On the left side of that screen you will see “System Protection”. When you click it, a dialog box will open. In the middle of the box you will see “Protection Settings”.
Protection ON means that the computer will automatically create Restore Points before major changes to your computer such as major windows updates, app, or driver changes.
Most computers will already be set with Protection ON. If yours is OFF and you want to turn it on, click the “Configure” button and click “Turn on system protection”. You can also choose how much space to allocate to Restore Point files if you like. Click OK to close the dialog box.
As always if you have any questions on any of my columns. Contact me by phone or email.
Have a good week,
