Creating Registry Files to Import Sites to Search
Another way to add sites to search in Internet Explorer is to write a registry file
that can be imported into the registry. This enables you to add a site to search
to multiple computers without your having to go through the manual step of
using the IE Add-ons Search Provider Creator for each computer. The following
example adds Tweaks.com to your search providers in Internet Explorer. Just
follow these steps:
1. Open the Start screen, type notepad and press Enter.
2. Type the following registry code into Notepad:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\
Tweaks]
"DisplayName"= "Tweaks.com"
"URL"=" http://tweaks.com/search/?q={se archTerms}"
3. Click File, and then click Save As.
4. Change the Save As type to All Files (*.*).
5. Type Tweaks.reg as the filename and click Save.
You have now created a custom search registry file that you can import into
any computer’s registry by double-clicking the file. Keep in mind that this
setting is a per-user registry setting, so every user on your computer who wants
to use this must import it under that user’s account.
