Chapter 3. The Registry > Registry Tips and Solutions

3.2. Registry Tips and Solutions

The solutions in the rest of this chapter concern the Registry Editor and other topics related to the Windows Registry.

3.2.1. Using Registry Patches

In addition to editing the Registry with the Registry Editor (see earlier in this chapter), you can make changes by using Registry patches. A Registry patch is simply a text file with the .reg extension that contains one or more Registry keys or values. If you double-click on a .reg file, the patch is "applied" to the Registry, meaning that the contents of the patch are merged with the contents of the Registry. This tool is especially handy for backing up small portions of the Registry or distributing Registry settings to other computers.
