Editing Registry Keys
This page describes how to perform common
editing operations on registry keys.
Creating new registry keys
You can create new keys by selecting the key under which you
want to create a new key and then select New key from
the Edit menu. Alternatively, you can select the
parent key under which you want to create a subkey in the registry tree choose Create subkey
from the popup menu that will appear when you right click on it. The
button on the toolbar can also be used for this purpose.
You can create a volatile registry key by
selecting Create volatile key from the Edit
menu. A volatile key is a temporary registry key which takes up no disk space
and will automatically get deleted the next time you reboot your system.
Copying registry keys
You can quickly copy a registry key
including all its subkeys and values to another key by using drag and drop.
Simply drag a registry key onto another key to perform a copy operation. Note that
the option to allow this must be enabled in the Advanced Options Dialog.
Another way to copy registry keys is to use the clipboard. Just select Copy
from the main menu and Paste it
as a subkey of another registry key.
Note that security and class information is not copied on Windows XP/2000/NT.
Moving registry keys
You can move registry keys by using the
clipboard. Just select Cut from the
main menu when the registry key to be moved is selected. Select Paste
to move it as a subkey of another registry key.
Note that security and class information is not moved on Windows XP/2000/NT.
Deleting registry keys
To delete a registry key or value, select the
key you want
to delete and select Delete from the main menu or
from the popup menu that appears when you right click on the key.
Note that when deleting
keys, all subkeys and values under the key will also be deleted.
Renaming registry keys
Select the item you want to be renamed and choose
Rename from the Edit
menu or the popup menu. You will be prompted for a new name.
