Summary: Use the Windows PowerShell tab expansion feature to quickly navigate the Windows registry.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to explore settings in the Windows registry?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use a cmdlet like Get-ItemGet-ItemProperty, or Get-ItemPropertyValue, specify the drive (such as HKCU),
            and then press the Tab key to navigate the registry, for example:

Get-ItemProperty HKCU:\SOFTWARE\ <TAB>
