Regjump Tool

If you often play with registry, I make sure that you'll need to explore its keys too. Usually, I open Registry Editor and point to my key because Registry Editor will open your last opened key by default. Microsoft provides another way to make it more effective.

The tool called Regjump, and you can find it on Microsoft website.
To use it, download it first, extract it because Microsoft give Regjump in ZIP file, extract it into your own folder but I suggest you to extract it into root folder or C:\Windows folder so you can call it although you currently in different folder with Regjump folder because C:\Windows folder is folder that included in %PATH variable environment value. To configure Windows Environment Variable you can learn on Otak Atik.
In fact, Regjump will help you pointing to certain key in Registry Editor.
Using Regjump is very easy. Regjump is a MS-DOS tool but you can call it through Run menu. OK to begin use it, click Start - Run menu, type regjump in box and then click OK button to test Regjump and if you run for first time, you'll confirm for its Term, just click Agree button and you won't to ask again at next time.
And to using it just type in Run textbox: regjump "registry_path". For example, if you want to open "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows" path, just type in textbox regjump "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows" and then press Enter. And Registry Editor will open with "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows" has opened.

    Wow, thank you so much, this program is very useful. In the past we used to have problems locating a certain registry key deep down in the registry where we have to navigate all the way just to find that one registry key but now, with this program life made easier. Your explanation was very clear, without it i would not have known how to use Regjump as i do not know a lot about command lines. Once again thank you! =)
