Default Scripting registry changes

I keep finding registry values that I like to change frequently that don't have some radio button or dropdown in some box in the control panel. If i want to change say...: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Cu rrentVersion\Winlogon\Username(dword) do I really have to navigate all the way there in Regedit or can I script registry changes?

Internet explorer (which i DO still use) no longer allows the user to change address bar search providers unless you click add and go to the ms site and pick from a list. If I want a search provider from a more obscure site (torrent site or what-have-you) I have to make extensive registry changes that I really wish could be automated.

Default Re: Scripting registry changes

You can make a few registry key entry files (.reg), and click on the appropriate one when you want to make a change. Do a little scripting and you could write a small menu to help you select what options you want to change.

Making .reg files can be found here.
