Open Regedit Directly To A Key?

Oct 15, 2012

This will let you open regedit directly to a registry key stored on your clipboard (via shell extension)

Instructions: Install .reg, then copy a registry key to your clipboard. Right click anywhere and "Open Registry".

Can be in either long or short name format. Translates HKCR, HKCU, and HKLM to their full names on the fly. Feel free to change the MUIVerb to anything you prefer. Is working on W7/W8/W2012.

Here are some sample keys for you to test with.





and here is the .reg. I'll attach a .zip if feedback is good.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"MUIVerb"="Open Registry"

Windows 8 Pro - Clean Install Using Regedit / ISO With Updates Included

Oct 16, 2013

I have a Windows 8 Pro Upgrade, and I know I can activate it after doing a clean install using regedit, but will this "trick" work if I use an ISO with included updates?

Security :: Can Change Local Security Policy Entries From RegEdit?

Mar 8, 2014

Which registry settings should I change to set the top two default Windows rules back to 'Unrestricted' ?

I set up some rules in the local security policy some time ago when there was fuss in the news about the cryptolocker virus. They looked a lot like the rules above (I found that screenshot online as I can't take one myself, read on..)

Today I was installing some software that wanted access to the areas I restricted. I temporarily disabled the rules, then re-enabled them. Being a dumbass I also set the top two rules (which are Windows default rules) to Disallowed!

Over the following 10 minutes various aspects of my PC stopped working, telling me that the local security policy prevented access. I couldn't even get into the Control Panel or the Local Security Policy screen to change it back, once I realised what I had done. I rebooted the machine - it won't come back up

I've tried a system restore by booting from the installer on USB (which did not work, it grumbled that it could not restore due a file locked by anti-virus) so I think I've got two options:

Refresh my system using the Windows 8 tools - but I suspect that might leave the LSP rules in place, as it retains my settings & preferences.Hand edit the registry to correct the settings.

Option 2 is looking best, I can get into RegEdit from the recovery console, but I'm not sure what to edit and what to set it to? This is on Windows 8.1 Pro...

Why Does Win 8.1 Still Enable Superfetch On SSD

Dec 28, 2013

I though that Windows 8.1 optimizes its settings if it detets I have an SSD

Well I did a clean install of 8.1 Pro and after I installed everything, I ran the winsat formal command in DOS so it can run WEI and do the needful

I noticed that Superfetch is still enabled/

I have 32 GB of RAM and an SSD why isn't it disabling it?

I know I can do that manually but I am wondering if it is beneficial to keep it on on my setup

This is how my RAM usage is after rebooting and leaving the system idle for 10 minutes:

On Windows 7 my RAM usage would've been much higher indicating that it is loading programs in the prefetch I'm not sure it is really doing anything on Windows 8 even though the service is active and enabled by default

Enable Built In Zip Feature?

Aug 31, 2012

Any way of enabling the built in zip feature but not have zip files displayed as folders in Explorer and wherever else? I use a program that needs to use the zip feature but I really hate how zips show up as folders. I know how to disable the zip feature but that results in my program not being able to utilize zip processing.

Security :: Enable BitLocker On Windows 8.1 Pro?

Jun 12, 2014

I recently upgraded my windows 8.1 to windows 8.1 pro as I wanted to enable bitlocker encryption on the laptop.

The issue is that I can't seem to enable or find bitlocker in any of the area's outlined. When I try to right click on the C: drive I don't have an option for bitlocker. When I go into control panel, there's no bitlocker icon. When I do a search on the machine for bitlocker I do get a "manage bitlocker" icon, but it's doesn't do anything when I click on it.

I have followed the tutorial on this site and downloaded/installed the reg files to enable it on a non tpm device. Can see that they did update the policy on the machine, but still no joy.

When I go into PC info on the machine in question I don't see anything about bitlocker. It's like it's not there. Do you have to add a windows feature to enable it?

My Taskbar Toolbars disappear. I added the Address toolbar to the taskbar. This constantly disappears and I have to add it again.

I also lose my New Toolbar I created following the direction on this Forum to create a Start Menu. This happens a least once a week or more and I have to restore them. What is causing this? How can I prevent it?

How To Enable Lock Screen In With WinKey L - 8.1

Nov 8, 2013

I have a laptop with 8.0 pre-installed.Could normally access the lock screen with WinKey-L.

Since update to 8.1, this is no longer possible.(all other keyboard shortcuts that I've tried, works OK)

Account is local with admin rights; pwd protected; not MS-account. No other accounts.When I start the laptop, I have the Lock Screen to enter pwd.

I can get to the settings page to customise the Lock Screen, but not back to the Lock Screen!

Why can I not get to the Lock Screen with WinKey-L? (what settings are preventing this?)

On 64-bit Windows 8, the browser frame process (both “modern UI” and Desktop) runs 64-bit.However, for compatibility with plug-ins, IE 10 on the desktop runs 32-bit tabs by default.If the user turns on “Enhanced Protected Mode” in Internet Options, Advanced,he will have 64-bit tabs by default for IE 10 on the Desktop.<Restart of whole computer is needed for the change to take an effect.>

Audio :: How To Enable Sound From External Monitor In Win 8

Nov 21, 2013

My laptop is connected to an external monitor by the HDMI cable. The monitor does not have the speakers but has a headphone jack that connects the external PC speakers. The audio, however, is still from the laptop build-in speaker though the video can be seen from the external monitor. I do not know why the audio does not go to the monitor. How to enable the sound from the external monitor instead of the laptop build-in speaks in Windows 8 when the laptop is connected to the monitor by the HDMI? I hope the audio will automatically go to the monitor when it is connected to the laptop but will back to the laptop build-in speakers when the monitor is disconnected.

Hardware Drivers :: How To Enable HDD Without Device Manager / CMD

Sep 15, 2014

I'm running Windows 8.1 on a SDD with a second HDD along side it. Inside the Device Manager I disabled my second HDD and rebooted my system.

Windows started as normal, but a few key windows programs have stopped working:
- Task Manager
- Device Manager (basically all control panel functions)
- Powershell (Command Prompt Works, but can't be opened with administrative rights)

The main problem is that I now can't enable my second HDD. Why the HDD is needed for these programs and how I can re-enable my HDD?

Audio :: Enable Speaker Output While Headphones Are On?

Feb 5, 2014

...for SELECT programs? For example, I like to game with headphones on, I listen to music with headphones on and more. I don't like to unplug them every time I'm done, that's too confusing and more importantly, I FORGET ALL THE TIME. play my "Free Alarm Clock" through the speakers despite having headphones plugged in. I use it not only to wake up but also to remind me of other daily things.

I'm not looking for something to play sound through headphones and speakers simultaneously. That would defeat the purpose.
