Windows 7: Missing MERGE for .reg Files

Windows 7
Missing MERGE for .reg Files

When I right-click a .reg file, Open rather than Merge appears in the popup list.

What do I do to fix this problem?

BTW, I'm trying to fix an empty Favorites problem as suggested in [URL=""]

Hello Tom,

Double check in Default Programs to make sure that the .reg file extension is set to have it's "Current Default" program set as Registry Editor (C:\Windows\regedit.exe). Afterwards, you should have the Merge option again.

Hope this helps,
