Mini Regedit is a lightweight Windows application built specifically for helping you enable or disable several Windows features on the breeze.
It comes in handy especially when you share your computer with multiple users and you want to restrict their accesses to several system settings, such as Registry Editor and Task Manager. Plus, it may prove to be particularly useful for restoring some of functions that have been disabled by viruses or other malicious threats.
The advantages of being portable
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to block some system settings on the fly, without having to go through installation steps.
You are welcomed by a plain interface that allows you to carry out most operations with minimal effort. All settings are displayed in the primary panel, so it proves to be actually pretty easily to configure them.
Mini Regedit gives you the possibility to disable the Registry Editor, Task Manager, CMD, folder options, as well as system tray menu.
What’s more, you can make the utility reveal hidden files and system items, as well as lock the taskbar setting options. In order to activate all of the aforementioned settings comprised in this utility, you are required to select the items and press the “Apply Settings.”
Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this small app, even less experienced users can master the utility with minimum effort. During our testing we have noticed that Mini Regedit carries out a task quickly. As it would be expected from such a small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
To sum things up, Mini Regedit offers a simple software solution when it comes to helping you enable or disable Windows features.
