Registry Value

By

Definition: A value in the Windows Registry contains specific instructions for your Windows installation.

Many kinds of registry values exist including string values, binary values, DWORD (32-bit) values, QWORD (64-bit) values, multi-string values, and expandable string values.

In Registry Editor, a value is located on the right hand side of the screen. Registry values are located under registry keys or subkeys, and ultimately within a registry hive.

Examples:
"Changing a registry value was the resolution to a weird problem I was having with certain windows that wouldn't close from the desktop."
