Find Registry keys - fast

If you ever need to locate or examine multiple Registry entries then right now you'll probably launch REGEDIT, choose the Find option, enter the search string you need and see what comes up. This works, but it's slow, and forces you to sit there, evaluate every Registry key as it turns up, then press [F3] to move on to the next. If you have to browse through many keys then this quickly becomes tedious in the extreme.

RegScanner is a tiny, portable utility that's designed to cut down on RegEdit hassles and simplify your Registry searches. It lets you specify the base keys and values you'd like to check, so you could opt to search only DWORD values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER, for instance. You're able to carry out case-sensitive string searches. And there's even an option to examine only Registry keys that have been modified in the time period you specify, so for example you could choose to display everything that's been changed in the last 15 minutes.

But the best part is that the search results appear in a single list. You don't have to sit there, hammering the [F3] key - everything just pops up in the search window and you can evaluate the results side-by-side. Then, if you decide you need to edit something, click a value, press F8, it'll open in RegEdit and you can change it to suit your needs.

Version 2.17:

- Added 'New RegScanner Instance' under the File menu, for opening a new window of RegScanner.


A very useful search tool, and the perfect way to speed up those lengthy RegEdit sessions

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
