All manual changes to the Windows Registry can be completed via Registry Editor, a tool included in all versions of Windows.
Unfortunately, there’s no shortcut for the tool in the Start Menu, meaning you’ll have to open Registry Editor it by executing it from a command line. Don’t worry, it’s not at all hard to do.
Follow these easy steps to open Registry Editor:
Note:You can open Registry Editor this way in any version of Windows that utilizes the registry, including Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Difficulty:Easy Time Required:It’ll take less than a minute to open Registry Editor in any version of Windows.
1. Click on Start.
In Windows XP, click on the Start button and then click Run ….
2. In the search box, or Runwindow, type the following: regedit and then press Enter .
Note: depending on your version of Windows, and how it’s configured, you may see a User Account Control dialog box where you’ll need to confirm that you want to open Registry Editor.
3. Registry Editor will open. If you’ve used Registry Editor before, it’ll open up to the same location you were working in last time. If that happens, and you don’t want to work with the key sor value sat that location, just continue to minimize the registry keys until you’ve reached the top level, listing the various registry hives.
