    I have a tool that opens the Registry at a specific key or, if desired, with all branches fully collapsed. This lets me save tailored shortcuts to relevant Registry keys along with my other notes about particular topics.

    I just posted the details in A scheme for opening the Registry fully collapsed or at a specific key

    I got the idea from Regedit - Windows CMD - SS64.com
    - Their own suggestion required a specific batch file to be written for each occasion but I thought that using tailored shortcuts would be much more practicable.
    - Security is better preserved using a tailored shortcut scheme because the central batch file can be in a permissions-protected folder and the only thing that requires elevation is the final call to RegEdit itself - a call that cannot do anything other than show the Registry without taking any action on it.

    That's cool but way more work than I want to get into for the few times I need to work with the registry. When I do I typically work with the same key repeatedly for a while so regedit opens it where I need it any way.
