If you wanna make a backup of your Registry, click on File, click on Export, and then pick a location where you wanna store the exported Registry file, let's just put it in Documents, let's just name it 'Backup_Registry'. Hit Save, and it takes just a minute to create. Come down here and look in Documents now and here is our backup. Notice that it has a .REG extension. Now if you go in and manually make changes to the Registry and you make a lot of mistakes and you need to restore from this backup file, assuming you can get the system back up and running again, you can over here in the Registry Editor and do File, Import, click on the Registry backup file you created, hit Open, and it tells us that the keys and values contained in the Registry backup file have been successfully added to the Registry, click Okay and we're good to go. Summary 8:00-8:25 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo we talked about manually editing the Registry, we talked about the role and function of the Registry, we also talked about the dangers associated with manually editing the Registry, we talked about how to use the RegEdit command to load the Registry Editor, we talked about how the information within RegEdit is organized, we talked about how to manually edit a Registry key, and then we ended this demonstration by talking about some things you can do to back up your system before making a manual change to the Registry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
