Many of our articles contain information about modifying the registry. To facilitate things for our readers, I’ve written a context menu Add-on (Menu Extension) for Internet Explorer that launches the Registry Editor and jumps to the specified registry key directly.

First, download RegJump (Direct download) from Windows Sysinternals. Unzip the file and move RegJump.exe to the Windows directory. RegJump is a command-line tool that takes a registry path and makes Regedit open to that path.

Add “Go To Registry Key” to the Right-Click Menu

Windows XP

1. Download regjump_xp.zip, unzip and extract the contents to a folder.

2. Double-click regjump.reg to run it.

3. Move the file regjump.htm to the C:\Windows\Web directory.

Windows Vista

1. Download regjump_vista.zip, unzip and extract the contents to a folder.

2. Double-click regjump.reg to run it.

3. Move the file regjump.htm to the C:\Windows\Web directory.

Usage

Open a new instance of Internet Explorer and navigate to a Web page that contains information about modifying the registry. Select the text (registry key), right-click and choose Go To Registry Key. Registry Editor will open directly to the selected key.

    Ramesh, this is amazing!

    Collecting my regtools in a quicklaunch OS MGMT sub-folder, but now I can go DIRECTLY to HKLM\HKCU\****!!!

    Does this work in Chrome? If not, would it be much work to add a context extension that has these admin rights?!

    Thanks
