Registry Value Entries

Wherever possible, you should use the Control Panel and the applications in the Administrative Tools program group to make changes to the system configuration. For those occasions when you need to view or adjust a setting, the files in this directory with the KBSubcategory: keyword identify the Registry entries that you can add or change using the Registry Editor.

In these files, entries for Registry values are listed under these topics:

  • Summaries of entries in the Select, Control, and Services subkeys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet
  • Network adapter cards, drivers, and bindings
  • Device drivers, with entries for disk, serial, and parallel port devices; keyboard and mouse devices; SCSI miniport devices; and video display devices
  • Services, with entries for the Alerter, AppleTalk and Macfile, DLC, Eventlog, NetBEUI (NBF) transport, Netlogon, Replicator, Server, NWLink, TCP/IP, UPS, and Workstation services
  • Mail and Schedule+
  • User preferences
  • Fonts and printing
  • Windows NT subsystems

System components with no additional entries are listed and explained in the file entitled "REG: System Components Without Additional Registry Entries."

CAUTION: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems, including corruptions that may make it necessary to reinstall Windows NT.

Not all entries that appear here may be found in the Registry for a particular computer. For many entries, the system uses the default value unless you add the entry to the Registry and specify another value.

Specific entries in these files appear in this format:

Entry Name REG_type Range for value entry

A description of the entry, usually including the conditions under which you might change the value. Default: value

(For value ranges that are Boolean, the value can be 1 for true or "enabled," or 0 for false or "disabled.")

In general, if you change values for any entries in the CurrentControlSet, you must restart the computer for the changes to take effect.

If you change values for entries under HKEY_CURRENT_USER using Registry Editor, you may have to log off and log back on for the changes to take effect.
