    Was asking because I was using the powershell script and wondered wich type would be the best, in way to simulate the manual type created from the ui. Guess I'm going to go with eighter modify_settings or install. Should cover most of the scenarios.
    Thanks.

    I use MODIFY_SETTINGS in my script for the context menu below to have the restore point type as System. It uses "Manual" for the description to help though.

    To Create a System Restore Point in Control Panel

    1. Do step 2, step 3, or step 4 below for how you would like to open System.

    2. Open the Win+X Power User Tasks Menu, click/tap on System, and go to step 5 below.
    Win+X, System now goes to Settings, not Control Panel.

    Do you know any resource where I can read what exactly is included in such a restore point?

    You write
    "....install a new app, driver, or Windows update"
    What about registry changes?
    Where is the limit of such a restore point, could an anti-virus software be deinstalled completely with such a restore point if I create one before I install the software?

    A restore point affects everything except what's in the "C:\Users" folder and its subfolders. Basically the user accounts.

    Think of a restore point as a saved system state. They are used to restore your system to the state it was when the restore point was created.

    If you did a system restore using a restore point dated before you installed the AV software, that software will no longer be installed afterwards.

    Here's some info below from Microsoft with more technical details that I hope will help.

    Hello,

    I can't remember the exact specific details, but it is for specifying the type (ex: Manual, System, etc...) of restore point to be created.
