    It can be dangerous to mess with Windows 10's Registry. In this guide, we detail the steps to restrict users from accessing and editing the Registry database.

    On Windows 10, the Registry is a critical database that stores low-level settings that are essential for the OS and many applications. Although you can use it to change numerous settings on your computer (such as stopping Windows auto updates and blocking users from changing the desktop wallpaper), it's never wise to edit this database unless you know exactly what you're doing, because a tiny mistake can result in many problems.
    While most tech-savvy users are aware of the risks of using the Registry, it might not be so obvious for non-technical users. For example, you could be sharing your device with other users. If they're looking to change certain settings, the instructions they'll find could involve editing the Registry, which may result in errors and other issues on your PC.
    If you don't want others to change settings on your Windows 10 device, it's possible to prevent users from opening and editing the Registry in at least two different ways.
