How to Add Registry Editor to the Control Panel

In this post we will see how to add or remove Registry Editor utility in Control Panel.

Open a blank Notepad file and copy/paste the following text into Notepad.

Code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}]
@="Registry Editor"
"InfoTip"="Starts the Registry Editor"
"System.ControlPanel.Category"="5"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}\DefaultIcon]
@="%SYSTEMROOT%\\regedit.exe"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}\Shell]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}\Shell\Open]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}\Shell\Open\Command]
@=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,\00,5c,00,72,00,65,00,67,00,65,00,64,00,69,00,74,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,\00,00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}]
@="Add Registry Editor to Control Panel"



Now save this file with .reg file extension; by default Notepad will want to save it as a .txt file, so in the Save dialog choose All file types instead.

You can also remove the Registry Editor from the Control Panel by creating a .reg file with the following contents.


Code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{77708248-f839-436b-8919-527c410f48b9}]




1. Click/tap the registry file (.reg) to merge it with registry.

2. If prompted, click on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

3.  You can now delete the registry file if you like.

4. You might need to restart your computer.
