  2. ForcedReboot Registry Key Value

    Hi Daniel,

    ForcedReboot is one of the subkeys in the registry. Subkeys contain data entries called values. The presence of a value on a key is a form of data that an application requires for it to run. An application opens a key and uses the values associated with
    the key to perform specific functions. A key can have any number of values, and the values can be in any form.

    You can visit these links for further information about registry values:


    Note: We do not recommend navigating and editing the values of the keys and subkeys in the registry. Changing the values of the keys and subkeys in the registry might cause serious system issues.

    We would like to ask if you are experiencing any issues on your Windows device. Since you are interested on finding what the value of a subkey stands for, we think that you are trying to troubleshoot your computer. If in case you are having any errors or
    issues with your Microsoft products, let us know so that we could assist you further.

    We are looking forward to your response.

  3. How to restore registry values?

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    You can perform system restore and check if it helps:

    Perform System restore.

    I suggest you to perform system restore and select a date prior to the changes which was done with the registry values and check if the issue gets fixed.

    To perform System restore:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      System.
    • In the left pane, click on System Protection.
    • Select the option to system restore
      > next. It will show all restore points already created.
    • Select the date prior to the date on which you have made the registry changes.
    Registry disclaimer

    To do so: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these
    steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article
    in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    322756 (How to back up and restore the registry in Windows )

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows



    Try the above step and let us know the status of the issue. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    Need Registry Value Data For Default Text Icon

    Hi there,

    I wanted to customize my text file icon,
    by replacing it with an icon I created.
    The registry change was successful.
    My custom made icon has now replaced the default icon.

    However,
    I mistakenly forgot to make note of,
    or export the registry file default value.
    So that I could change it back to it's default value/icon in the future.

    Would anyone know what value this registry entry needs to be,
    in order to restore it back to the default text icon?

    Below is a screen shot of the registry entry in question,
    with the edited value.

    Any help with restoring the default value of this registry entry,
    will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.
