Oh, I see!! I have to add it. Sorry, I didn't realise! That's probably why I couldn't find it!! :-[

So what do I do? Is this right?

Right click - "ADD" - New Key
Name - "MinWidth"
Type - "REG_SZ" (this came up by itself)
Data - "-450"

Where do I find the Data Editor? I tried doing it the way I suggested and it didn't work - couldn't 'name' it.

I knew that image of Tech's was going to confuse, it isn't a standard windows application, you have only got regedit.

Yes you can.
But I suggest that application to manage the registry.
Pretty better, and free: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download469.html

Thanks for the link Tech, that was what my not to subtle hint was for ;D as a google search for Data Editor returns many hits nothing that seemed the same.
