Got a little fed up of having to running through multiple steps to run File History manually so went looking for components that run File History in Win10 and came across fhmanagew.exe in the system folder. This made my day as i now i can run a command-line which reduces the steps to run FH manually. Open you choice of note pad and paste the following and save it as a .bat file. @Echo off C:\windows\system32\fhmanagew.exe -backupnow exit Now to can run FH with a single click of the mouse. Hope this helps those that use File History.
