My computer is seriously screwed up so bright I can barely see - I want to back it up to an earlier date but I can't find how to do that.   If I search for it all that comes up are three .jpg files?

 

What is the procedure to backup to an earlier date.

 

Also some things are missing like to be able to adjust screen brightness - its missing so I want to restore to earlier date/

Thanks - I have been able to restore it and everything seems to be back in decent shape for an aging laptop.
