Registry Editor - Adding favorites (bookmarks)

This is a less known but very handy feature when you’re making repeated registry changes to test things, helping you to get very quickly to specific locations.

For example every time I install a new Citrix Client I may have to uninstall the old one first and then go back and change a couple of registry keys (in this case to always send the Windows keys combinations to the remote desktop, pass-through ).

The alternative is to export the entire branch from File menu and re-load at later time – that’ll export all sub-keys and values into a .reg file, which you can edit afterwards with say Notepad to keep only the ones you want to re-load later (just in case others may have changed and will not want to overwrite the entire branch).
