Chapter 29. The Registry > Using Regedit

Using Regedit

You might never need to edit the Registry by hand. Most Registry keys are set by the software that uses them. For example, Office XP sets its own preference values, and the Control Panel applets set the appropriate Display, Sound, and Networking Registry entries. In a way, the Control Panel is mostly just a Registry Editor in disguise.

You might need to edit the Registry by hand if directed by a technical support person who’s helping you fix a problem, or when you’re following a published procedure to make an adjustment for which there is no Control Panel setting.
