    How to Remove Old Restore Points?


    Toshiba laptop L55 series, W10 Home Anniversary.
    With my older laptop running XP, I use to be able to manually delete older system restore points. I don't see a way to do that on my current machine. When I open System Restore, it shows all the restore points, but doesn't provide a way to erase any. Thanks in advance for your assistance....Ed

    Thanks, Brink and Steve. I used the CCleaner method and it worked fine.
