Taking a Tour of the Registry

Taking a Tour of the Registry

As you’ll see a bit later, the Registry’s files are binary files, so you can’t edit them directly. Instead, you use a program called the Registry Editor, which enables you to view, modify, add, and delete any Registry setting. It has a search feature to help you find settings, and export and import features enable you to save settings to and from a text file.
