In order to add the button to the IE toolbar, we would need to create certain entries under :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions\

My query is, can I use the Preferences class to create these entries ?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

No, the Preferences API can only access certain parts of the Registry; it is not a general-purpose tool.

But this article may point you in the right direction.

it looks like this horse has already left the barn, but I'm going to slide this over to the intermediate forum anyway
