  2. In the Registry Editor, select the registry key you need to back up.
  3. From the Registry menu, select Export Registry File option.
  4. From the Save In list, click the folder where you want to save the backup.
  5. In the File Name box, type a name for your backup file, such as "Options" or "Backup."
  6. In the Export Range box, be sure to select "Selected branch" option.
  7. Click Save. The file is saved with a .reg extension.

Once finishing backing up the registry files, you are allowed to edit the registry manually:
  1. Click Start, and then go to Run.
