How to Create a System Protection shortcut in Windows 10

information   Information
System protection is a feature that regularly creates and saves information about your computer's system files and settings. System protection also saves previous versions of files that you've modified. It saves these files in restore points, which are created just before significant system events, such as the installation of a program or device driver. They're also created automatically once every seven days if no other restore points were created in the previous seven days, but you can create restore points manually at any time.

When system protection is turned on, you can undo undesired system changes by doing a system restore to revert your computer (all drives that have system protection turned on) to a previous point in time.

This tutorial will show you how to create or download a System Protection shortcut that opens directly to the System Protection tab in System Properties in Windows 10.
