Windows 10 Registry Question


[link to this post]
 
Ive made quite a few manual entries and changes to my registry in windows 10, is there a way to backup the changes and entries i have made so if i was to reinstall windows i can manually import those settings into the registry again?

Thanks.

An example would be to this i manually added entries to change the icons of all my drives in my computer.

AMD FX-8370 X8, MSI 990FXA-Gaming, 16GB DDR 3 Cosair Vengence 1600Mhz, 9351.1GB Hard Disk Space, 4GB Nvidia 960GTX PCI-E 16x Graphics, 850watt PSU.

Open regedit, in the left hand sidebar click on the item you wish to save, go to File > Export then choose a suitable name and location.

To load the data, regedit then File > Import.

Repeat for all of the bespoke entries you wish to save.

If you click on Computer at the top of the left hand sidebar then File > Export it saves the whole configuration in a single file. This can be a large file. My current backup is ~450MB.

Depends how many you've got to add, but you can use REG ADD in a batch file, or even REGEDIT in a batch file from the export file that was suggested below
