How to Fix Sluggish Performance by Restoring in Windows 10

This article describes steps one can take to improve performance in Windows 10 by restoring it.

If you think an app, system driver, or an update for Windows is making your computer perform worse, restoring it to an earlier point in time might fix the problem.

Restoring your computer to an earlier point in time won’t affect your files and documents, but remove apps, systems drivers, and updates and undo recent changes after the restore point was created.

A new restore point takes place between 7 to 14 days.
