How to run multiple instances of regedit.exe?
« on: March 12, 2012, 06:17:10 PM »
Though present on many websites, I've decided to publish it yet here, since it's very useful for those who work with Windows Registry a lot.
Here's the command line you are looking for:

Code: [Select]
regedit /m

Very nice. This is very helpful when you're trying to compare entries.
You're never a loser until you quit trying.

Yes, handy, if you have no other editors. You can also copy regedit to another location and start the copy. I usually have a renamed regedit.com and regedit.scr handy in case a bad guy ruins my exe's, and they can be run at will, too.
