Screenshots: Windows 8 File History (updated)

You can scroll through all of the available versions by using the Previous version and Next version buttons

For the sake of showing a detailed example, let's suppose that you launch the restore operation from the File History window with the goal of restoring a single file. When you do, you'll see a window like the one shown in Figure L. Here you'll see all of the folders in the backup and can drill down to any folder containing the file or files that you want to restore.
