CmdRegedit Command Line Switches

Although they are not mentioned in the documentation, Windows Registry Editor has comprehensive options for manipulating registry via command line. Here is the syntax and usage examples.

Windows Registry Editor Command Line Syntax

  • To export all registry to file c:\all.reg, use the /e switch as follows:
    regedit /E c:\all.reg
  • To export a specific registry key to file file.reg, use the /e switch as follows:
    regedit /E file.reg <registry_key>, for example
    regedit /E c:\hklm_run.reg "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" will export list of Startup programs from Run section.
  • Merge or import file.reg to Registry:
    regedit file.reg
  • Create and replace an existing registry from a file file.reg:
    regedit /C file.reg
  • For silent execution of Regedit program, use the /s parameter. If /s is specified, Regedit will suppress any informational dialog boxes and operate quietly, without asking for confirmation.
  • To delete specific registry key from the registry:

    Windows 10, 8, 7 You can create .reg file and specify in it minus sign before the key name to delete (example - contents of sample file c:\del.reg):


    Now if Regedit will be launched by command regedit c:\del.reg, the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System will be removed from the system registry.

    Windows 95,98,ME Regedit has switch /d, use it as follows:
    regedit /D <registry_key>, for example
    regedit /D "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{834261E1-DD97-4177-853B-C907E5D5BD6E}" will delete entry of Trojan CWS

  • Windows 95,98,ME There are several command line switches for specifying location of User.dat (/L) and user name (/R):
    regedit /L:c:\windows\user.dat /e c:\test.reg
