Backup/restore for these specific settings in Windows

I just freshly reinstalled my Windows and I miss my old settings that are stored in odd places like:

  • Power Plan settings

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ControlPanel\NameSpace\{025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D}
    
  • CMD.exe font/layout options, etc.

  • Quick Access Toolbar

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Ribbon
    
  • Quick Access Folder items

      %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\f01b4d95cf55d32a.automaticDestinations-ms
    
  • Run dialog box history

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU
    

Backup-restore of entire registry or AppData on a fresh install doesn't seem like a good idea. Finding out these specific settings and restoring them manually also seems tedious.

Is there a software that backs up and restores these settings?
