Registry Explorer


Replacement for the Windows built-in Regedit.exe tool. Improvements over that tool include:
  • Show real Registry (not just the standard one)
  • Sort list view by any column
  • Key icons for hives, inaccessible keys, and links
  • Key details: last write time and number of keys/values
  • Displays MUI and REG_EXPAND_SZ expanded values
  • Full search (Find All / Ctrl+Shift+F)
  • Enhanced hex editor for binary values
  • Undo/redo
  • Copy/paste of keys/values
  • Optionally replace RegEdit
  • more to come!
No, I just saw the full search ability, so I had to try it.

I'll be using this from now on instead of regedit.

What is the "real" registry? Below, what are "A" and "WC"?

FWIW, I got this response whan I asked the same questions on GitHub.

In a nutshell: The real Registry is the Registry is it actually is. The hives we are familiar with are a limited projection, some more limited than others.
"WC" is used for the redirection for Windows Containers. "A" is used for redirection used by UWP processes.
