Do I use time machine to restore to a previous day or time?
And how. Looking at TM it does not make any sense to me.

Hi,

Do you want to restore your whole system to a previous date? This way has to be done via Recovery HD, then restore from TM and select date you want and restore.
If you need specific files, select the folder look for the file from the date you want and click restore.
Let me know if this helps you.

I would like to restore the system to a previous date. Its easy on my PC. I have the time machine on an external USB hard drive.
Thanks

I figured out how to do a system restore. I just restored from a new download.

When finished I need to figure out how to restore my apps from the time machine.

To restore your apps, be careful which one you will restore.. the ones self-contained like any .app will be very easy to restore, but bigger apps like all Adobe stuff, Apple Pro Apps, need to be installed again.
To restore the apps, open Time Machine, select the Applications folder and select the date from the right, then click on the app, then restore.
I hope this helps.
Remember as long as your TM backups are fine without problems, you can restore the whole system the way I told you in previous message.
