Quickly view schema name and guid in crm form

Most of the time we need to refer to our CRM entity/ form for schema name during development.
Here is some script which can allow developer to identify via the CRM record form.

Create a file with following code, save as Debug.url extension, so you can use this as shortcut in bookmark to trigger the script.  Just copy to Favorite folder, it is ready to use.

3. Click New , and then click DWORD Value .
4. Name subkey to DisableSecureDecryptionKey .
5. Right-click DisableSecureDecryptionKey
6. Type 1 in the Value data field
