3. The Registry > 3.3. Registry Procedures

Registry Procedures

The solutions in the rest of this chapter will show you how to use the Windows Registry: how to find keys, how to automate changes, how to back up, and more. Use these techniques throughout the rest of the book, whether you’re just playing around or trying to solve a problem.

Note that there are a few programs designed to make working with the Registry and its settings easier. For instance:

TweakUI

The options in this little Microsoft add-on make certain Windows settings more accessible, settings that would otherwise require editing the Registry. Note that the version of TweakUI used with older versions of Windows should not be used in Windows XP. TweakUI is available directly from Microsoft, as well as from http://www.annoyances.org. See Appendix A for a list of TweakUI settings, arranged by task.
