    System Restore

    I assume this comes under software? I was reading an article, claiming to be for Win 7,8 and 10. I was looking to remove the shortcut arrows off my icons (something I dislike). It told me to create a system restore and do a tweak in Registry. Not a problem very easy but it did not work, instead it replaced icons with a black square. So I looked for sys restore and cant find it anywhere. So I went back into registry and removed what had been put in and its fine now and arrows have gone too!!. But - where the heck is system restore in win 10 home? (1809)

    hay dal; thanks for the winaero link, discounted that as probably irrelevant. I have seen the create restore link, but i wanted to restore link, not create - unless restore is hidden under create???

    From my previous post, you will have noted the use of rstrui.exe

    Simply create a shortcut using that:
    System Restore-snap-2019-04-09-17.51.22.png

    And e.g. Win key + S restore->
    System Restore-snap-2019-04-09-17.25.52.png

    and click that button...
