    Just to be clear...
    So it's not like Win 7 where every 2-3 days Win automatically created a restore point and if I want it to behave as it was before I have to restore this feature manually now, as explained above, for Win 10 FCU 1709?
    Or 'SystemRestorePointCreationFrequency' is just to change interval check, but will still work as in quoted text?
    Hello hexaae, :)

    Windows will still automatically create the usual scheduled restore points.

    "SystemRestorePointCreationFrequency" is for if an app, command, or schedule calls to create a restore point in Windows 10, system restore will only create the restore point if no other restore point has already been created within the past 24 hours (1440 minutes) by default. If it's been longer than 24 hours since the last restore point, it will get created. Changing the "SystemRestorePointCreationFrequency" allows you to change the default 24 hours to what you want instead based on your needs.

    Users can always manually create a restore point at any time from within the System Restore user interface though.

    Hello John,

    The DWORD is no available in the registry by default. You would have to add it with the data value you want to change the default.

    The steps on how to do this is on the first page here in this tutorial.

    I guess i should have added that i followed the tutorial and created the frequency line and put 0 in it but i am not getting any restore point unless i do one myself. i though 0=1440. i did not know whether i should put any number in that space other than 0 or whether i needed to delete the line.

    The value "0" would set it for unlimited to never skip creating a restore point.

    A restore point will only be automatically created by Windows if an app, command, or schedule calls to create a restore point.

    If you like, you could use either tutorial below to have a restore point created at startup or on a schedule you want.

    You're most welcome.

    I've noticed that sometimes it may take a few moments for the restore point to actually show up after being created.

    yes, i know, and i use the standard method by going to sys protection and clicking on that, so see how long it takes doing it the 'old fashioned' way and it gives off a message box with completion success. so , when i use the downloaded methods and nothing happens i suspect they arent working for one reason or another. and get verification when i look--nothing happened. i had just been trying to set up a one click easy method to set a point immediately before i try something dumb or that i am not sure how it will work out. in windows 7 i had those, but i am not navigating around windows 10 as easily or the items i got used to are now hidden somewhere.
