Registry

The configuration database in Windows starting with Windows 95. The Registry contains settings for the hardware, system software and applications in the PC. It comprises the SYSTEM.DAT and USER.DAT files, and there are separate Registry entries for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. A PC with many applications can easily have a hundred thousand or more entries in the Registry.

In the earlier Windows 3.x versions, the Registry database held a few settings, and all others were stored in the WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI text files (see WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI).

Better at the Control Panels
Routine access to the hardware and software configuration is done via the Control Panels and Properties menus. Right clicking an icon in Explorer and selecting Properties displays information about the device, data, program or application. See Win Registry and Registry cleaner.
