To be clear, on Windows 11, this shows the "classic full" context menu instead 
of what Windows considers important or recent plus "Show more options..."!

Surely you mean (-v displays confirmation):

$ regtool add -v 
Key {86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2} created
$ regtool add -v

$ regtool list -pv 
InprocServer32\ ()

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis              Calgary, Alberta, Canada
