Registry editor (regedit.exe) is known not to be particularly comfortable, Microsoft has made hardly any changes to the now old-fashioned windows tool in recent years.
In addition to the search function, the Registry Editor does not offer a direct way to jump to a specific key, which is especially annoying if you have to hail through a particularly long registry key.
However, there is also a tool for this, Microsoft offers from the Sysinternals collection a free tool called RegJump, which can be downloaded here.
The small command line applet takes a registry path and opens Regedit for that path. It accepts root keys in the standard form such as: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and in short form with HKLM.
