    Go to previous state after software install


    I want to try a bunch of apps that I have on my new computer.
    Ideally, each time I don't like a certain app, I'd like a way to easily return to a point before the app was installed, instead of just uninstalling.
    Does anyone know how to do this, or of a program that does this?
    Thanks.

    Hello Arkas,

    You could create a restore point before installing the app.

    System Restore Point - Create in Windows 10

    This way, you could quickly do a system restore to take your system back to how it was when the restore point was created.

    WOW! Thanks! I was so sure it would require some external party app, I didn't stop to look within WIn10.
    I'll start testing this, in the meantime, If there is a software that can do that easier it would be great!

    I don't think you'll find anything much easier for what you're wanting to do than this feature include with Windows.
