    Unfortunately not, still the same effect, it only hides the selected key, but when you open it again, keys are uncollapsed.

    On Win7 through Win10, when I close Regedit then reopen it the display returns to the way I left it. I make it a practice to collapse all subkeys so all that is showing are the 5 Hives before closing. That's the way it opens next time. I do it that way as most times I am not going back to the same place.

    ... Even the 'Find' feature is lame; you have to click 'Edit' to select 'Find next' for any search string, since the dialog box closes every time it's clicked.
    Or press F3

    So where does regedit cache the state of its open keys?
