The bookmark edit window will let you edit registry key/value descriptions, links as well as set a color for it.

Editing a bookmark item

In the edit bookmark window you can set a description for the bookmark which will appear in all registry editing windows. You can associate the bookmark with one ore more web pages, like an article where you learnt about this particular registry key or value.  You can also choose a color for the registry key so that you can easily recognize it while editing a registry. When you are done with the settings click the Apply button to store the changes.
