    Hello there,

    I would highly recommend you to back up the registry so you can restore it safely if something goes wrong.

    The article you posted contains steps that tell you how to modify the Windows registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
