    The next feature release of Windows 10, Windows 10 version 1809 (may be named the October 2018 Update), improves the built-in Registry Editor.

    Microsoft did not touch the Registry Editor of the Windows operating system for a long time. While it did offer basic functionality like creating, editing, and removing Registry keys and values, it did not support many features that third-party Registry editors offered.

    Programs like RegScanner, Regalyzer, Registry Commander or Registry Finder added useful features such as an address bar, tabbed editing, or better filtering options that improved how system administrators work with the Registry.

    Microsoft introduced an address bar in the built-in Registry Editor when it launched Windows 10 Build 14942 in 2016. The new functionality was launched in the Windows 10 Creators Update for all users but was not introduced in earlier versions of Windows such as Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

    Interesting improvements. Sometimes finding modifies in the registry could mean our PC is infected by malware, for example if we find a strange .exe file here:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    Could mean a malware set the registry key to start with Windows.
