Registry Shortcuts


Registrar allows you to easily access registry keys and values from Explorer by supporting registry shortcut files and allowing you to specify registry paths as a URL.

Registry Shortcut Files

Registrar shortcut files allow you to easily access a registry key or value from the Windows shell. A registry shortcut file is a text file with the extension .rrs. The first line of a registry shortcut file should specify the registry path, for instance HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion. For more information on registry paths, read Registry Path Syntax.
When double clicking a registry shortcut file, Registrar will start and open the registry key specified in the file if it exists. Registry shortcut files can be used as an alternative way of organizing your bookmarks using files and directories but will not have the advantage of key coloring and descriptions which are supported by the built-in bookmark editor.

Note: this functionality is only available if is has been enabled in the Advanced Options dialog.


Opening Registry URLs using the reg: URL protocol

Registrar supports the URL protocol and allows you to open any registry key with Registrar using any command line or address bar. Just type reg: followed by the path of the registry key or value you would like to open, for instance reg:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software. For more infomation on registry paths, read Registry Path Syntax.
This feature can also be used to specify registry locations from web sites or HTML pages like in the following example: 

reg://HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel

When specifying registry shortcuts using the reg: URL protocol, make sure that the backslashes (\) which are used to separate the key names will not be replaced by normal slashes ( / ) when using an HTML editor such as Microsoft's Frontpage.

You could use this feature as an alternative way to organize your bookmarks using HTML files but will not have the advantage of key coloring and descriptions which are supported by the built-in bookmark editor.

Note: this function is only available if is has been enabled in the Advanced Options dialog.
