Registry is one important and delicate area in an operating system. There are thousands of keys and sub-keys. So if you are not sure about the location of a particular key, it might take some time to find out which you have to live with.

Just like bookmarking websites, you can also bookmark a registry key. For e.g. if you frequently go to a certain registry key and make changes constantly, it is possible to bookmark that key.

  • Click Windows Key + R to open Run Window
  • Type regedit to open registry editor
  • Open the registry key that you would like to open periodically.
  • Click on Favourites on the top. Then click add to favourite. Name it appropriately.
