Registrar Registry Manager Help
Browsing the registry
Registrar Registry Manager provides a common
and user friendly interface which allows you to quickly find the keys and values
you are looking for.
To edit your local registry, click
Edit Local Registry from the main application toolbar. You will see a tree and a view representing the keys and
values of your registry. The interface is very similar to Windows explorer, but
then instead of folders you see registry keys and instead of files you see registry values. You
can use the same navigation buttons (forward, back, up) as in Explorer. Also, the copying
and moving of keys can be accomplished in the same manner through cut, copy and paste or
using drag and drop.
Browsing the local registry in
the main registry window.
Navigating the registry
You can navigate through the registry
tree to find the key you are looking for. (Note: if the registry tree is not visible, select Registry
Tree from the View menu).
By selecting a key in the registry tree, the contents automatically
become visible on the right.
If you know the exact name of the registry key
or value you want to access, you can directly type it into the address bar for
an immediate registry jump. The address bar can also be used to copy the current
key name or value to the clipboard.
Expanding and collapsing registry
The + and
signs in the registry tree can be used to expand and collapse registry
branches by clicking on them.
Note that there is an option Expand All that you can
choose from the menu that appears when you right click on a key in the registry tree. Selecting this
option will expand all branches that can be found in any of the subkeys of that branch.
Depending on the amount of subkeys of the branch, this can take a long time.
