You can add a key to the registry of your Windows CE device using the Registry Editor included with Workspace ONE Assist.

The registry editor is arranged with Keys listed on the left side panel and Values listed on the right side panel.


You must start a remote management session. For details, see Start an Assist Session and select Registry Editor when prompted.


  1. Once a connection has been established to the remote device, you can add a key by selecting the hive you want to add a key to. Select a hive folder on the left and the entire hive folder opens up, revealing all the existing keys.
  2. Select the 'Hamburger menu' icon to the right of the hive folder.

    A menu displays showing options for making new keys and values, renaming keys and values, and deleting keys and values.
  3. Select New followed by Key.
    A new key (or folder) appears in the left side panel, labeled New Key, selected, and ready for editing.
  4. Give the New Key a new label and press the Enter key.
