    Weary about editing registry


    Hi, I recently had the idea to change the color of my drag selection box, I looked online and the only way I could find it possible was to edit the registry. I've never edited the registry before and I know it can be dangerous. Anyone know of another way I could edit it or can verify I wont brick my system if I do edit the registry?

    Here's a link to a video tutorial about how to edit it:

  2. Registry editing

    Hello,

    This issue may have occurred after one of the following situations:

    • You upgrade the Windows operating system.
    • You install or uninstall CD or DVD recording programs.
    • You uninstall Microsoft Digital Image.

    Given that, we suggest performing the methods in this article:
    Your CD or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows or other programs
    .
    The resolutions that are listed in that article may help solve some instances but not all instances of this problem.

    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, refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base
    article.


    Feel free to update us with the results.

    registry edit no longer controls adaptive contrast

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Did you back up the registry before making any changes to the Registry Editor because serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly?

    Try the below methods and see if this helps.

    Method 1: Disable Display Power Saving Technology.

    Right-click on an empty space on the desktop > Graphics Properties >
    Power > Power Feature > Click on the drop-down list and change to
    On Battery and uncheck the box beside to
    Display Power Saving Technology
    and see if this helps.

    Note: Restart your computer once for the changes to take effect and check for the issue.

    Method 2: Registry Edit.

    We know that you have changed the registry value, but try the below steps and change the value of FeatureTestControl to 9250 and leave it in base hexadecimal.

    NOTE: 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, please refer this link:

    Step 3: Then, look for FeatureTestControl key >
    Right-click on the key > Then, change the data to 9250 without changing anything else and exit the registry.

    Note: Restart the computer once for the changes to take effect.
