System configuration information is stored centrally in a hierarchical database called the registry. You can use Registry Editor
to add and edit registry keys and values, restore the registry from a backup
or to default values, and to import or export keys for reference or backup.
For our power users, Microsoft has added something special starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14942
– Registry Editor (regedit.exe) now has an address bar! This enables you to easily see your current registry key path, and copy it if needed. You can also paste or type in paths, and pressing enter will take you to that location. You can use Alt + D
to set focus to the address bar.
The new address bar in Registry Editor replaced the bottom status bar.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off showing the address bar in Registry Editor
for your account in Windows 10
