This section provides a tutorial example on how to view registry values for the FreeCell game program, which stores game play statistics of each user in the registry.
The next exercise is to view registry values related to FreeCell:
1. Start "regedit.exe".
2. Follow the registry key tree and locate the first FreeCell registry key:
You should see 7 registry values under the "FreeCell" key as shown this picture:
3. If you have played FreeCell before, you know that those registry values are recorded by FreeCell
as your personal game scores.

If you read your game statistics carefully, you will see that

which is the Hex number of "79"
