Here is a vbs solution: http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-jump-to-the-desired-registry-key-with-one-click/

The idea is you copy the desired key in the clipboard, run the script (which changes the value of HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Regedit\Lastkey with the contents of the clipboard), then start regedit.

You do need to do 3 actions, but it's faster than navigating manually.

HTH,
Dan

You can use following Power shell script. It will send an email with the details.
