Registry Explorer\ComDlg3 Key

If you've ever looked through a memory dump and noticed the following registry key getting modified, here's my take on what it's doing.


It appears each time a user opens a file or saves a file using the standard windows dialog box then it's recorded in this registry

For example I opened this registry


And was able to read the following values

notepad++.exe Windows\temp

Which would seem to me to indicate that the user opened the c:\windows\temp folder with notepad++.exe
