Registry loses changes after restart / Windows 11

Hello to the community,

I would like to change a registry entry at a certain point (StuckRects3) in order to adapt the behavior of my taskbar.

The change itself can be carried out as an admin via regedit without any problems, and the reopening of the registry still shows the adjustment.

Then I restart explorer.exe in the task manager or the entire computer and everything is reset again!

Since this function still worked shortly after installing Windows 11, but no longer, it is even more inexplicable why it could be.

I'm at the end of my ideas, I didn't find a similar problem when searching the forums, so the question is here now.

Thx

Jürgen

Having exactly the same problem.
1. Run registry editor as administrator
2. Change StuckRects3 value
3. Click OK
4. Exit Registry Editor
5. Locate Windows Explorer in Task Manager Processes
6. Restart
7. Go back to Registry Editor and change has reverted to original setting.


Why did the WIndows 11 update change this in the first place?

I'm having this exact issue. I update the StuckRects3 value. Upon reopening registry editor, the value matches what I entered. I stop and start explorer.exe. Upon viewing the StuckRects3 value after restarted explorer, I see the value has reverted to the original.

It seems registry modification is not getting supported there. Use the Feedback app to share your feedback.

Hello,
See this thread for what seems to be an explanation as to why it's happening.
