    system restore in windows 8.1


    I have had windows 8.1 for only a short time. Today, I changed some browser settings that resulted in some changes I didn't anticipate. Undoing the settings didn't help.

    I would therefore like to go back a day or two with system restore but can't figure out how (e.g., in Windows 7, you pressed the F8 key while rebooting). Any suggestions?

    Additionally, one of the changes I hadn't anticipated was that - I think - the new "classic desktop" was installed which I had studiously avoided downloading despite relentless reminders from Microsoft. Can I uninstall it?

    If it would help any possible responder, my email is: casalef88@gmail.com.
