    How do I create a restore point in WIN10 Home 64 bit I got as far as..

    PHP Code:
    [/PHP] I was following a recommended step by step, I got as far as system Protection, then the window went down into the Task bar and I cannot go any further, as I cannot get it to come back up to full screen.
    I am sight challenged, and am in the middle of customising my chosen theme.
    Basically, I have lost the text on my sign in screen, it's hit or miss if I can actually get into the computer so want to create a restore point, (first one) to get back to where I actually could see the text again.
    I bought this new computer tower & monitor in July 2016, still trying to tweak the theme. As I really have no idea what I am changing, when I change things I tried doing it one change at a time, but obviously that didn't work.
    Can you advise how I can get to create a restore point, please? I never had any problems doing this in WIN XP PRO.
    As I am sight challenged, I need step-by-step, not screenshots, as I cannot see them (too much white).
    Thanks in advance
    Sorry I do not know what a PHP is...and I must say the format this information is in is very scary, why can't you lovely programmers/developers remember us un-educated folks out here & make WIN10 more user friendly. I guess, more like WIN XP! I realise that can't be, but you get my drift, I'm sure! I apologise for the long winded post, too...

    Hello Sylvia, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You might see if you may be able to use the tutorial below to drag the System Protection window back onscreen if it went offscreen some how.

    Thanks, Brink, I appreciate the help. But, re the first link, does it work with WIN 10? It does say with 7 & 8, but nothing about WIN 10.
    I will check out the other one & get back to you.
    Thanks so much

    I am so confused with this forum set-up....I tried to reply by using edit! Bad move....
    I did say in my original post that I am sight challenged, & cannot read screenshots, that's the first hurdle....the format you have set the restore info out in is so complicated, (looks good tho' I couldn't follow it. When I saved the file to downloads, I did what I always do & clicked on 'open containing folder', this time, the folder didn't open....I tried it twice, no joy...if I cannot open the folder, what now? I am in all sorts of dire trouble well as everything else, I cannot see my log in page, the date/time & sign in details are just gone....making logging in a big this screen also closes itself after about 20 odd seconds, it's making it all so difficult to get any work done, as so far today I have logged 4 times, taking me around 15 minutes each time....I cannot leave the dam thing. Sorry just venting...and feeling peckish!
    Please, I am old & am doing the best I can to appear clever...I mean, I'm not stupid, just old!
    Kind regards

    If you like, try using step 2 in the tutorial below for shortcut to make it easier. It has step by step instructions to help.

    Since you do have sight issues, you might see if increasing the DPI scaling level in Windows to make everything appear larger may help some. The tutorial below can help show you how.
