It’s always struck me as odd that system tweakers use the registry editor all the time to fix annoyances in Windows, but nobody has created a tweak to add the registry editor to the control panel… until now.
I’ve created a registry hack to add the registry editor as another option in the Control Panel in any version of Windows.
Usage in Windows 7 or Vista
After installation you’ll need to choose System and Maintenance in the control panel.
And you’ll see the new Registry Editor item at the bottom of the list:
Perhaps most useful, it’s now available through the start menu search box.
Usage in Windows XP
After installation you’ll see the new icon in Control Panel if you choose the classic view.
Just extract and double-click on the installation script. You can remove using the included removal script.
