    How find something in the Registry if I know the path?


    Using the Find option in regedit, I was (finally) able to find what I was looking for in the Registry. Now that I've found it - and knowing the path, can I find it next time by keying in the path? I've tried different key word combinations and a partial path using the Find function. However, for some reason, my tries haven't been able to find this folder. I'm stymied!!! The actual path is:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Macrium\reflect\Recent Folders\Image

    I tried keying in this path, but it doesn't find it.

    Thank you.....

    :)

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    You can perform system restore and check if it helps:

    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.
