If you’ve ever tried to find something in the Windows Registry you’ll know how basic the built-in registry search tool is. A free app called RegSeeker is looking to solve that by providing a much more selective and customizable search utility.
With RegSeeker you can restrict searches to certain Registry groups as well as pick whether you want it to search keys, values, or data. You can then go as far as to delete the entries from within the interface, and a backup of the key will be made just in case you find that it had an unexpected impact to your system.
This app isn’t going to be for everyone, but if you spend a lot of time mucking around with Windows Registry entries I’m sure you’d find this useful. It also lends a hand to enabling some common Registry tweaks, such as adding an “Open in Notepad” option to the Explorer context menu.
