How to create a system restore in Windows 10 Technical Preview
The causes as why your operating system might break are numerous but most likely a third party application you install or a virus you catch by surfing the internet might cause errors directly in the registry files of your Windows 10 Technical Preview operating system and by having the system restore point you will be able to resuscitate your system to an earlier point in time thus fixing it very quickly.

Tutorial for creating a System Restore in Windows 10 Technical Preview:

Although the Windows 10 Technical Preview makes backup copy of the system every time you install or uninstall an application you might want at a certain point in time to create your own restore point and go back to it whenever you wish.

  1. Directly from the Start screen in Windows 10 start writing the following: “Control Panel”
    Note: Another way to access the Control Panel is by moving the mouse cursor over to the upper right side of the screen and left click or tap on the “Search” icon from that menu. From the search box write “Control Panel” without the quotes and left click or tap on the “Control Panel” icon.
  2. In the Control Panel search box situated in the upper right side of the window you will need to write the following: “system restore”.
  3. Left click or tap on the “Create a restore point” link situated under the “System” feature.
  4. Now you have the “System Properties” window in front of you.
  5. Left click or tap on the “System Protection” tab situated in the upper side of the System Properties window.
  6. Left click or tap on the “Create” button in this tab.
  7. Now a small window called “System Protection” will pop up.
  8. In the box under the “Create a restore point” topic you will need to write a name for this backup copy.
  9. After you gave a name to the restore point you will need to left click or tap on the “Create” button.
  10. Now your Windows 10 Technical Preview system will start creating the restore point.
    Note: This process will take up to 10 or 20 minutes.
  11. After the process has finished you will get a pop up message which will tell you that the restore point was successfully created.
  12. Left click or tap on the “Close” button in the window above and you are good to go.
  13. Now if you have any issues with your Windows 10 operating system you can just go right ahead and bring it back to the restore point you just made in this tutorial.

So I don’t think it can get easier than this.
