    Sorry @Edwin as I posted earlier, it is not the proper key, it doesn't even exist,
    Unless... one creates it or merges a reg file

    Sometime back a few months ago, Shawn had to re-do that .reg because MS changed something and it no longer would work. This is from the tut, I just downloaded it again.....

    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14965, Microsoft has incorporated two new features:

    1. You can now use CTRL + L to set focus to the address bar – while we already supported ALT + D, we recognize that some people prefer this keyboard shortcut instead, so now you have the option to use either one.

    2. You can now use shorthand notation for HKEY names – you told us that when sharing registry paths you always use shorthand notation (HKCU) instead of typing out the full HKEY name (i.e. HKEY_CURRENT_USER), so we should support them in the address bar, and you know what? We agree! You can now just use “HKCR”, “HKCU”, “HKLM”, and “HKU” instead of typing or pasting the respective full name “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT”, “HKEY_CURRENT_USER”, “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE”, or “HKEY_USERS” into the address bar.
