You can’t edit registry files in Windows 10 Mobile the way you do in PC versions of Windows. To edit registry on Windows 10 Mobile, you need a special app, which allows you to dig into your phone’s registry, and enable some features and options that are not originally available on your device.
That app is called Iterop Tools, and it includes some handful features that will allow you to edit registry files in your Windows 10 Mobile device, and more. The app also features a History feature, which allows you to keep track of your recent activities in Registry Editor, and a Registry Browser which allows you to manually browse your phone’s registry.
