    Windows 10 Registry Editor - regedit.exe


    I have just recently upgraded to Win10 Home. After the upgrade, I did a clean install. Runs well.

    My issue is that regedit.exe freezes during any search. It will search and find the first few instances of an item, then it just stays in the "search" window forever. When I hit "cancel", it says that regedit.exe has stopped working, then it restarts regedit.exe.

    Thanks for any replies!

    A few others have reported issues with regedit searches in this forum- worth reading that thread. I don't think it was resolved for them when I read it.
    Registry issue with new 10586 build. - Windows 10 Forums

    I recall one person used regedit from a prior build. Mine's fine on latest build.

    There are free registry editors around other than MS's and have the equivalent of an 'address bar' which I really like.
