How to remove "copy file path" from registry

By threedoves ·
I installed the wrong version of "copy file path" in Windows XP home. It copies some files, but not the correct way. I would like to remove it from the registry and start over.
It doesn't have an entry in add/remove programs because it's not a program in and of itself. It's a registry entry.
I've researched this to death and can't figure out where to go to remove it.
Next time I'll back the darn registry up first! Goodness!
Thanks in advance.
Respectfully,
Kathy

What are you describing here? Something that is "not a program in and of itself. It's a registry entry." so as such you can't remove it.

Yet somehow you appear to feel that you INSTALLED it???

I've never used Windows Explorer - EVER.

I prefer the flexibility (and self-contained scripting) of Explorer2.

"It copies some files, but not the correct way."

by seanferd In reply to How to remove "copy file ...

It copies the <i>path</i> to a file, not a file. (Essentially, the full file name.) If you want to copy a file, there are only 20 ways to do that built right into Windows. Unless you were looking for something a bit different? We may be able to suggest something.

But IC-IT certainly has your solution.
