Editing Win95 Registry

Question:
Is there any way of editing the Win95 Registry other than exporting it to a text file?. If not, how can I quickly change the registry ie. When exported my registry takes up over 1.3mb and using INPUT to find the data I want takes ages, is there any other way of doing this?

Answer:
Visual Basic provides several quick functions for editing the registry. The first is GetSetting, which reads a setting from the registry. It is designed to work in concert with SaveSetting, which writes settings to a special place in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Setttings. For most applications, reading and writing to this area is sufficient. If you want to read other settings from other areas in the registry, you have to use the API functions to do it.
