This tutorial explains how to bookmark Windows registry keys for quick access.
Many of us already know that there is a built-in feature in Registry Editor to add any Registry key to Favorites. It is really helpful to quickly access the keys that we have to use later many times. It is not easy to access a particular key manually as we need to dig in into the tree structure of Windows Registry. By bookmarking a particular Registry key, we can access it quickly and easily.
Those who don’t know about this good feature, this tutorial is helpful. By following the simple steps, you can bookmark any key within the Registry Editor and then access that key in just two clicks. You can also remove any bookmark when you don’t have to use it anymore.
Above you can see some Registry keys bookmarked by me with the help of this feature.
