    Default Windows 8 Registry Editor Using

    Hey guys,

    Many windows 8 users can use Windows 8 Registry Editor to alter their registry. As we know that windows 8 Registry Editor has been around for some time now, though many of us haven’t ever used it. For me, modifying registry is some pretty serious business, so can you tell me how can I start to use the Registry Editor in Windows 8.

    Detailed step, pls!

    Many thanks!

    As fot the use of Windows 8 Registry Editor, you can do like this:

    You can easily access the Registry Editor by typing regedit in the Start Menu’s Search box. The User Account Control asks you to authorize access by clicking Continue. The Registry Editor appears with an expanded menu of the five registry key sections:


    The HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT section stores information about registered applications. The HKEY_CURRENT_USER section stores information explicitly about the user currently logged on to the computer. The HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE section stores system settings and preferences. The HKEY_USERS section stores information about all users on the computer; after the user logs in, the HKEY_CURRENT_USER section takes over. The HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG section stores runtime information; this information is generated when a computer boots and is not permanently stored.

    You can expand one of the sections and drill down to the desired registry key. After you find the specific registry key to alter, you can both double-click the key name or right-click the key name and select Modify. An Edit String window appears that allows you to modify the existing string value.

    When you finish, click OK. Your changes are immediately recording into the registry and appear in the Registry Editor
