Is their any way to read & write .csv file to the registry using C# winforms? If yes how to do that please help me?
It has nothing to do with "winforms". You need to embrace separation of concerns.

Yes, you could (and you have two solutions here that direct you to where you can find out how), but I hope you'll take Sergey's advice, and the caution expressed by OriginalGriff, and NOT do it ! Writing some large bunch of "stuff" into the Registry is the worst possible storage method you could use.

Yes, but I really wouldn't. It is getting harder and harder to access the registry (for good reasons - it was badly abused), and large values (as CSV files tend to be) aren't a good idea at the best of times.

Instead, why not store the file somewhere a bit more normal, and more likely to be backed up? Where should I store my data?[^] makes some suggestions, and it's a lot easier to play with.
If you must store it in the registry, then see here:[^]
5 for providing more reasonable alternatives. Indeed, the registry is already heavily abused, so it's the best to avoid contaminating it even further. :-)

Thank you very much for the solution and it is good article.
you are right instead of using registry, I stored in locally and access from there.
