Updated: January 21, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
To print all or part of the registry
Open Registry Editor.
Click the computer or top-level key of the registry area you want to print.
On the File menu, click Print.
You can print the entire registry by clicking All or only part of the registry by clicking Selected Branch and typing a particular branch in the text box, and then click OK.
Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on your computer.
To open Registry Editor, click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
You must have appropriate permissions to make changes to a registry key. To maintain security when making changes to a registry key for which you need administrative credentials, log in as a member of the Users group and run Regedit as an administrator by right-clicking the Regedit icon, clicking Run as, and clicking an account in the local Administrators group. The Regedit icon does not appear by default from the Start menu. To access the icon, open the Windows or WINNT folder on your computer.
The average registry can take hundreds of pages to print. Consider printing only those branches you need.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
