Registry Values

 

These commands read values from the Windows Registry and save them to a variable, write to the Windows Registry or delete values from the Windows Registry

 

A word of caution is in order here. Only those who have experience working with the Windows Registry should be using these commands. Otherwise problems may occur with the operating system.
