The Registry Editor is an indispensable tool for system administrators, geeks and normal users who wish to modify hidden Windows operating system settings that are not available through its user interface. You can add it to the control panel if you wish. This adds additional value to the classic control panel tool, which Microsoft continues to remove features in the settings type.

The Registry Editor is designed as a tool for users who want to change Windows settings that are not accessible through its user interface. The main purpose of this tool is to view and modify the system’s registry settings – a set of special files that contain configuration information about Windows and almost all installed software. Windows and many programs (except those that are “portable”) use this information to read and write their own settings in the registry.
