Windows isn't just an OS, its an entire ecology of different systems and architectures. You need to start by reading the technet white papers on the subjects you've listed. You could also pick up some of the mcitp guides.

And know that you're looking through 20 revisions of history and backwards compatibility. And don't be surprised when you read something that says "MS says to do it this way" and then in the next document a totally new way is presented.

I was wanting to read up on some certain parts of windows OS's and I was wondering if Microsoft made some type of "complete guide" that explained pretty much everything like the registry, command prompt, file system, interface, etc.

Depending on what exactly you're looking for, you might find the Windows Internals book interesting. It covers a lot of the details of the inner workings of the operating system. It depends on how low-level you want to go though. If you're interested in kernel debugging, the Advanced Windows Debugging book is pretty decent as well.
