5. Registry Tweaks > 5.3. Class IDs of Interface Objects

Class IDs of Interface Objects

Windows keeps track of its various components with Class IDs, 33-digit codes consisting of both letters and numbers, enclosed in {curly braces}. Class IDs are stored in the Registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID. Locate the key named for a Class ID under this branch to change any settings or behavior of the corresponding object. Use the Registry Editor's search feature to find the Class ID for an object not listed here by searching for the caption of the object.

The following is a list of the commonly used system objects and their corresponding Class IDs.
