So, I have one more question (AND YOU'RE THE MAN on this subject!!!).
So by choosing both of the "including all" options in the user home directories screen of TS , not only will I be saving everything I myself have added to the OS, but also the apps I've added?

Yes.

If you are running a manual (On Demand) snapshot, be sure to make use of the Comments field to describe what is being added or removed, for easy identification, should you need to reverse the changes.

Since v19.1 of Timeshift (now on 21.9), if you enter a comment, it will exclude that snapshot from any pre-determined culling period set.
