    Thanx Cliff, it being "Metro", it can have it's own theming. Will see if it's viable and figure something out.

    Personally I feel only things used every day should be theme-able. Special tools not. For example I've had to take a lot of time to make Process Explorer readable by changing the color options, and this for a tool I only need once and a while.

    I just started to show you how the older versions, of ShowKeyPlus, looked while theming, out of fun, I had no idea you would take it further.

    What I don't understand is, what am I suppose to do with the Test Hive(never done this before)? How do I use it/set it up? The program runs well in any case.

    I don't agree I'm afraid.

    Some people choose themes because they have vision issues which mean the default themes aren't easy for them to read, so following the theme means the tool becomes usable for them.

    What I would like to see as a feature is:
    The ability to read the BIOS key and read the Registry Key value from an Offline Windows image...
    ie Read the values from WinPE/RE on a non-bootable OS (Remote Registry)

    Thanks a bunch for this. I had a two-year-old at my house who (cleverly?) threw away my win10 DVD right after I installed and activated it. I've spent several hours on hold and talking to Microsoft only to have the technician tell me there's nothing they can do.

    2015 and Microsoft expects me to believe that the product key which verifies if my product is genuine on their servers isn't stored locally somewhere? They really should make the product key more transparent to the user.

    Now I have a copy of my product key and boot media, which is easy to grab from the MS website. I'm all ready for the inevitable crash I'll eventually experience. Thanks so much again. MS wanted me to purchase another copy of windows. Great solution, guys. Really doing a great job convincing me not to move to Apple products.

    EDIT: Just to be clear, I didn't notice the CD was missing (or that he even picked it up) until several days later when the trash had been compacted. I *may* find it hidden in the couch cushions or something. I'm quite certain of where I left it though so I'm sure it was him...

    Had to be him...

    Tell me I'm not crazy!

    Never mind, I figured it out! I ran the "Retrieve key from backup" and directed it to the test hive "Software" and received this:

    I just noticed the jump list in the taskbar too.

    @Kyhi
    That's a good idea - will check it out, dunno if the API's (for OEM keys) are natively in PE or if integrating them in the exe is possible (dependency-wise) - if not WMI should work - the registry keys shouldn't be a problem. I'll setup a PE image with .Net-FX and check it out.

    You're welcome - don't worry, that happens to all of us...LOL

    You're welcome

    Thanx for testing, I think the jump list duplication has been fixed in 5723 (the RGHost link I PM'd Shawn) - if not, please let know.
