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.
