"reg.exe" - Query Registry Keys and Values

This section provides a tutorial example on how to query registry keys and values with the 'query' command of the 'reg.exe' program.

The first command I want to try with "reg.exe" is the "query" command. Here is what I did to query the "FreeCell" registry key and its registry values.

C:\herong>reg.exe query hkcu\software\microsoft\windows
   \currentVersion\applets
