What is a Windows Registry
A registry is a sort of database. In modern Windows environment, the registry is not a single file; instead, Windows registry file location is a bunch of folders and files called “hives” and distributed among the file system. This structure makes a manual Windows registry access too tough.
To repair, copy or restore Windows registry files you can use a program allowing automated registry saving, for example, Handy Backup. This program will automatically detect any Windows registry location and access to any data stored in it to back up or restore these data.
How to Find a Particular Windows Registry Key Location?
To modify or delete a particular entry, you can access Windows registry data using a built-in Windows tool called regedit, or apply some third-party instrument to manipulate with Windows registry files. We strongly recommend backing up all registry files before making any changes!
