Registry is a dangerous place, but if you have to modify it, you'll probably use Windows Registry Editor. There are only a few shortcuts for regedit.exe but especially Ctrl + F (Find) and F5 (Refresh) shortcuts may become handy. Unfortunately, you cannot create a key or value with a keyboard shortcut, however you can use the context menu key to open right click menu, then select the option you want.
