If there is a problem with the registry information, there is a possibility that the worst situation that Windows can not startup may occur. So when editing registry information, you need to pay close attention.
Backing up the registry value
▼ If you back up Windows registry information before editing the registry key, you can restore it in case of emergency, by clicking File > 2Export and Save it.
