This is where creating a Restore Point in Windows 10 and 8 can be useful for you.

Some time computer starts working awkwardly or becomes laggy which you may not like, you can then revert back to the Restore Point that you saved and your pc will go back to how it was at that time before updating or installing any apps that made your computer laggy.
