Registry Finder is a free tool for searching and editing the Windows Registry.
The program opens with a REGEDIT-type view. Your Registry is represented in a tree on the left, with individual items on the right, and you can double or right-click to edit them or add something new.
There are some interesting extras. Registry Finder has a web-like Address Bar at the top, providing another way to navigate your system. And Back and Forward buttons on the toolbar make it easy to review the keys you've browsed.
The History pane is another useful addition. Delete something and it appears here. If you've decided you've made a mistake, clicking Edit > Undo brings it back.
The "Find" feature is particularly strong. You're able to search the entire Registry, or just a particular key; there's an option to run case-sensitive searches; and unlike REGEDIT, the program doesn't just return its matches one-by-one. Instead they're all displayed at once, and in a separate tab, so you can easily browse the list and switch back to some other Registry view as required.
Version 2.17 (Changelog):
Ability to export keys and or values for deletion (importing the resultant .reg file deletes exported items instead of creating).
Do not connect to remote registry until a tab is activated.
The Save command is renamed to Export.
Added the Export command to the list pane in registry window.
Fixed crash on middle-click on unoccupied area of the tabs bar.
Fixed: Under certain circumstances, update may not work (pressing the Install button in the Update Available dialog have to effect).
