Prevent the Registry from Opening at Last Open Key

You must have noticed that after you edit your registry and close it with some key left opened then next time when you open the registry it opens at the exact same point where you left it. It can be useful sometimes when you want to start editing from the place you left. But sometimes you do not want anyone else to know about the last changes even if you close it at that point subconsiously. 

Steps to Prevent the Registry from Opening at Last Open Key :

1. Open Registry editor.(how to start registry editor?)
2. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version >Applets > Regedit.
3. Double click on "Lastkey" and delete the value.
4. Now, close the registry editor.

Now, you must have the permission for the above editing. To get the permission:

1. Press Win + r.
2. Type "regedt32" and press enter.
3. Now, go to Edit tab on top and click on Preferences
4. Now, Select the User and deselect on deny selection box of full control and click OK.
5. Close the Registry Editor.

Congrats! Now noone will know what you edit last in the registry, not even you ;)
