The Sysinternals website, part of Microsoft TechNet, offers a free registry utility called regJump. This opens the Registry Editor to a specific key of your choosing.

Simply download a zip file, unzip the executable inside to your main Windows directory, and you can run the following on the DOS command line:

c:\regjump [PATH]

For example, to open the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ Microsoft\Windows key in the Registry Editor, issue this command (all on one line):

regjump HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\

Note that you can abbreviate the main keys like so:

regjump HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows

The abbreviations are:


Sysinternals RegJump
