Where does Windows 2000 store the last key accessed?

A. In Windows 2000 when you start the registry editor it remembers where you last were and automatically reopens that key. This information is actually stored in the registry in location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Regedit\LastKey

If this annoys you, it could be reset at each logon to null via a script with a .reg file, e.g.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00<br><br>
\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Regedit\]<br>
"LastKey"=""
