Setting New Windows Registered Owner

by Sep 22, 2015

This small piece of code prompts for a new registered owner name, then updates the value in the Windows Registry. Note that this requires Administrator privileges.

#requires -RunAsAdministrator

$NewName = Read-Host -Prompt 'Enter New Registered Windows Owner'

Set-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion' -Name RegisteredOwner -Value $NewName -Type String

It serves as a template script for any change you may want to apply to the Windows Registry.
