Here is a short tutorial that explains how to undo last system restore in Windows 8 PC. You don’t need to install any additional software for this.

In earlier tutorial, I covered how to create System restore points (manually and automatically) and restore Windows 8. We can restore our PC to revert back to a particular previous state of our Windows 8 PC. But sometimes, restoring to a previous state makes our PC more unstable. Even sometimes in hustle-bustle, we restore our PC to a wrong restore point.

Windows provides solution to this problem as well. When you restore Windows 8 PC to any Restore point, System Restore creates the recent restore point for your system. This ensures that you can easily revert back to the state of your Windows 8 PC that you were using, before restoring your PC.

To undo the last system restore in your Windows 8 PC, follow the steps mentioned below:

Step 1: The very first thing that you need to do is open the “System” settings. To open, press Windows Key + X, to open the Power User menu. From the popped list, click on “System”. It will open System options in a new window.
