Purpose:Display the specified Windows Registry tree


Format:REGDIR [/= /D /F /P /Sn /T /V] keyname


keynameThe Windows Registry key to enumerate


/D(ata)/Sn (nesting depth)
/F(full name)/T(ime stamp)




REGDIR will display the Windows Registry like TREE or DIR does with the file system. The Windows Registry is very large, so trying to display something like:


regdir /v /d hkcu\software


will typically display tens of thousands of records, and can potentially run out of memory in 32-bit Windows.


The key must begin with either the full root key or the short name:


Full root keyShort


If you don't enter any arguments, REGDIR will display its command dialog.




/=Display the REGDIR command dialog to help you set the command line options. The /= option can be anywhere on the line; additional options will set the appropriate fields in the command dialog.


/DDisplay the data for all values (only valid when used with /V)


/FDisplay the full name for each key. (The default is to display only the indented name of the current key, similar to TREE's output.)


/PPause after displaying each page


/SREGDIR will limit the nesting recursion to that number. REGDIR defaults to unlimited key recursion.


/TPrefix the key names with the time stamp of their last change.


/VDisplay the values for each key.
