    This tutorial has been updated to use a more efficient method for creating a system restore point. :)
    Thanks, nice handy feature.

    The restore point is created as type: “Application Modified”, should be changed to “System Restore Point”
    The restore point is created with the description: “Manual”, preferred description to be entered by administrator when possible.
    Thanks again.

    Hello Jansi, :)

    The command used to create the restore point uses the "MODIFY_SETTINGS" parameter for a "System" type restore point.

    You should be seeing this below for the restore point in System Restore.

    You might see if using the shortcut in step 4 or 5 below may work better for you to be able to enter a description.

    Sorry, tested with "Restore Point Creator".
    3 different restore point managers, 3 different results.

    Amazing how they all show different types despite the command specifying for "System".

    Create Restore Point Content Menu without UAC prompt in Windows 10


    @Brink

    Hi Shawn, could you please update your doing adding the "without UAC prompt" either using Script and in Task Scheduler?
    I tried unsuccessfully also using C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k "Wmic.exe /Namespace:\\root\default Path SystemRestore Call CreateRestorePoint " ", 100, 7".
    This will complete your already wonderful doing (as usual !) when you want give a standard user the capability to run it.
    Really appreciated!

    Hello Sergio,

    I'll see what I may be able to come up with, but it may take a while of playing with.
