This post is all about enabling the Windows Registry Editor. If you are new to Windows Registry section, please be careful. This post is for the advanced users of Windows Operating System software. But if you are serious on how to fix problems with Windows, you are highly welcome to use the commands below, but with care!

Situation: – When you try to open the Registry Editor in your computer, you are likely to receive the“Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator” error. Due to this error, it is impossible to remove this restriction using Registry Editor itself through command prompt or through Group Policy.

  1. Open Notepad.
  2. Copy the code given below and paste it.

reg add “HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem” /t Reg_dword /v DisableRegistryTools /f /d 0

        3. Save the file as EnableRegistry.bat. Run this file as Administrator if you use Windows 8, Windows 7 or Windows Vista. In Windows XP, simply open the file. CMD will flash for a second and then disappear. This indicates successful execution.

4. Log Off and Log Back On.

You may also try this code below:

REG add  HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
