RegistrySometimes we need to change something that is not readily available to do with basic commands. That’s where the registry comes in, and I come in to help you out with it. It should be warned that doing the wrong thing with the registry can mess up your PC, but anything I mention in this tutorial shouldn’t cause your computer any bother whatsoever.


XP:

Go to the start menu, then click run. Then type ‘regedit’ without the quotes. Then, go through the explorer menu on the left in the following order:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion

In there, there should be a key called ‘ProgramFilesDir’. Change the value to the path you want, but don’t add a slash at the end.

Vista:

Go into the start menu, and type in start search ‘regedit’. Then, click on the program that appears on the menu. Follow the same procedure as for XP from therein.
