Uninstall Windows 10 if you don’t like it
Got a problem with Windows 10, here's how to go back a version or two!
Other recovery options
File History is a feature in Windows 8 and 10 that automatically backs up changes to libraries (documents, videos, photos and music), the Desktop, contacts, favourites and OneDrive. Again, you'll need an external hard drive. Open the Control Panel and click File History. Click Select Drive on the left and choose the drive. All your files are backed up to a folder called FileHistory. Just use Explorer to open it and recover lost or damaged files.
Turn on File History and keep copies of files on an external hard drive
Freeze your PC in time
ToolWiz Time Freeze (www.toolwiz.com) is an interesting free tool that, when run, freezes the current state of the computer. You can make changes to files, modify system settings and even install software, but none of it will affect the computer, which is running in a sort of virtual mode when Time Freeze is active. Restart the computer and all the changes made will be undone, putting the system back the way it was when Time Freeze was started.
Use Time Freeze to immunise your PC from any changes - even good ones!
