RegEditX is an application that makes your registry editing more productive than ever.
RegEditX extends the standard Windows Registry Editor (REGEDIT), so you don't have to learn new ways of accomplishing tasks you already know how to perform.
You will immediately notice a row of buttons and a combo box located under the Registry Editor menu bar. The buttons activate frequently used commands such as Find and Add Favorite. By default, these launch Registry Crawler, a highly-recommended companion program to RegEditX.
Registry Crawler is NOT free, but we think you will find the improved productivity worth the low price. If you do not wish to use Registry Crawler, please use the RegEditX:Options to re-assign these buttons to standard RegEdit functionality.
The combo box contains the registry keys that you have examined. Continue using the Registry Editor as you did before --- expand keys in the tree view or edit them in the list view--- and these keys automatically appear in the combo box.
Once they are there, you can:
· Quickly navigate to a key by selecting it from the combo box. Since you probably work with the same keys repeatedly, this saves tedious navigation.
· Cut, Copy, and Paste keys to and from the clipboard. Many times online documents contain references to keys such as HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoft, etc. Simply copy this text to the clipboard and paste it into the RegEditX combo box by right-clicking on it and selecting Paste. Then navigate to the key by pressing RETURN. This is much faster than clicking on those itty-bitty (+) signs in the tree view!
· Navigate through the keys by typing into the combo box. As you type each piece (separated by backslashes), the tree incrementally navigates to the key.
After selecting a new key in the tree, RegEditX nicely auto-resizes the columns in the list to optimally show the values of that key. You will be amazed how much mouse dragging this saves!
