DataBase : Guided tour
|First of all, identify your Version of Windows.
|Some of you may immediately want to see the Map of the site or, if you are too
eager, the Tips and tricks section. Others
may prefer to read the Introduction to the
registry first. Then, you will have to read the
sections about HKeys, as well as Backup and maybe Compression. It may prove necessary to know
the different Types of registry
variables and to be able to use .reg and .inf files. If security does
matter for you, see about policy management with .pol and .adm files.
|Afterwards, you will be able to continue the
guided tour by clicking the icons located in the icon bar
above, to discover the registry's entries sized by theme.
Start with the Machine (computer) icon.
|If you want to find a precise entry, use the
Index, or the Noindex (for entries starting with No) in
the menu on your left. See also the indexes HKCR, HKCU and HKLM in that menu.
|You may have to read the sections about Boot.ini, MsDosSys or Rundll32. The registry also uses the
Control Panel Extensions. Finally, here are
some Links and Books about the registry.
