Changing Registry Settings

Edit the Registry

Click the Start button, and then click Run.

Type regedt32.

Click OK.

Click the plus sign (+) next to the function you want to display.

Click the folder with the item you want to change.

Double-click the item you want to change, Change the setting, and then click OK.

You can continue to change other items.

When you're done, click the Close button.
