Windows 7: Can you combine several different *.reg files into one reg file

Can you combine several different *.reg files into one reg file

I have a couple dozen three or four line separate reg there a way to "auto-combine" these separate reg files into one complete reg file containing all the keys, I don't have to import each reg file separately into the main registry ?

Or do I have to copy/paste each separate key, etc...into one main reg file via notepad ??

Sure. All the .reg files start with Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00, a blank line and then the data.

Start a new AllInOne.reg file in notepad.
Copy and paste the first one completely.
Copy and paste each of the other .reg files below that, skipping the Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 line.

Backup the registry then merge the AllInOne.reg file then check each key to make sure you got what you expected.

To backup the registry, start regedit.
Select Computer at the top.
Click on File then Export.

I did this on my Win 7 Pro X64 system and it's 311,538KB in size.

To restore select File then Import and point to the one you exported. Reboot after.
