We will start by showing you how to create a restore point in windows. Restore points allow you to take your PC back in time to the exact state it was in when the restore point was done. This will also delete any new files you have created since the restore point was put in place.
Begin by searching for "Create a restore point".
Click on "Create..."
Give your Restore Point a name, I've decided to name mine "Windows 11 22H2" and click "Create".
The restore point will begin to create and a message like the one shown below will appear when the creation of the restore point has finished.

Now that we have created the restore point, here's how to use it.
Open the Restore Point menu again and click "System Restore..."
Click "Choose a different Restore Point" and click "Next".
Select your restore point, in my case "Windows 11 22H2" created on 13/10/22 and click "Next".
Once you are happy with your selection, click "Finish" to begin the restore.
