More specifically, you can use Registry Editor to view and make changes to the registry keys/values to control specific function of Windows system.

  • Navigate the registry key branches by using the > icon (+ icon for Windows XP), locate the subkey you want to delete on the left side of the registry editor, or the value in the right side.
  • Select the target subkey or value, click Edit in the registry editor menu, and select Delete.
  • Then you'll receive prompt asking for you confirmation, click yes button to confirm the removal.

For deleting values, you'll received this message: "Deleting certain registry values could cause system instability. Are you sure you want to permanently delete this value?"
  • Close Registry Editor and restart your computer to let the changes take effect.
    (Note: editing registry can be very dangerous, single mistaken operation that would lead to unexpected system malfunction, do not attempt it imprudently unless you have enough expertise.)

How to backup and restore Registry Keys:

In case any problem happen during the modification of Windows registry and you need to undo the change or restore the setting, a backup can save you a lot of troubles. So if you decided to delete or modify the registry keys/values, it is suggested to backup them first.

  • Click on Start, type regedit in the search box then click enter to open Registry Editor.
    (For Windows XP user, click Start-Run-type in regedit and hit OK button)
  • Navigate the registry key branches by using the > icon (+ icon for Windows XP), locate the subkey (left side) that contains the value (right side) you want to backup, highlight it.
  • Click File in the Registry Editor menu, click Export. Please make sure you have had the subkey selected.
  • Select a location to save the file in the prompt window.
  • Rename the file in the file name section if needed, the click Save button.
