    information   Information
    .Reg files are registration entries that are text-based human-readable files for exporting and importing portions of the Registry.

    The New context menu allows users to quickly create new files, folders, and shortcuts. You can right click or press and hold on your desktop or in any folder window, and click/tap on New to open the New context menu.

    By default, Registration Entries is not in the New click context menu. Adding "Registration Entries" to the New context menu will make it easy for users to be able to quickly create a new registry file on demand ready to be edited afterwards.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Registration Entries to the New context menu for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove "Registration Entries" from the New context menu.
