Also, I found another nostalgic, elegant, and useful shell extension in my old DVD+R backups and uploaded it: Something to add the Registry as one of the namespaces in My Computer.
Registry access in "My Computer" folder? 1.5mb zipped? Elegant? Really? 😕
Anyway, icon is good for simple regedit.exe link.
Perhaps today's upload would be more to your taste? It's at most 1/10th the size of the My Computer solution and just extends regedit.exe with a history dropdown that persists its data across sessions.
NOTE: The screenshot doesn't show "Localize" in the history dropdown because I hadn't yet focused the right-hand pane when I took the screenshot.
