How to Edit the Windows Registry

Editing Windows Registry is may harm to your operating system, if you do any wrong when you editing it or by mistakes when you go around of your windows registry.So my first advise is backup your Registry before do any changes to it and through it we can recover any error that made by our mistake.
Windows Registry Editor

Editing the Windows registry can most easily be accomplished through the REGEDIT program built into Windows.
You can open your software Go to start> run> and typing 'regedit.'

All the changes you're doing using registry editor do not have to be save just after you done, All the changes are applied upon restarting the system. Also you should keep in mind that there is no 'cancel' button for undoing accidental changes, so make sure you keep careful note of the values you intend to edit and backup your registry before do any changes to it.

Registry values are stored in keys which appear as folders in the REGEDIT window. Most of the following instructions will have you add or edit values inside these keys.

When you highlight a key in the left pane, the values stored in it appear in the right pane. To edit a those values,
Right click it and select 'modify'

To add a new value:
  • First navigate to the key in which you wish to add the value
  • Then right click it and select 'new' then the type of value you wish to create. ( Values are 5 different types and you need to select which type of value you need to enter to the registry )
  • Generally this will be either a string or DWORD value. Once you have created the value, name it, then right click on it to 'modify' its properties.

Note: That the naming convention for the registry, We would not allowed to use,
spaces, separate words indicated by using capital letters. For example: RegistryEditTips
