Windows 7: Regedit question

Regedit question

Hi,
I have Win7 Home Prem running on 64bit HP Desktop. I was trying to checkout a string in the HKey_Classes_Root\inkfile. I think I erred by going down and selecting .ink instead of using find; somehow I missed the find option. Anyway, when I click on .ink it puts it over in the large window under Name, Type, Data. I get the option to Modify binary data, Delete or Rename. What I am trying to do is close that .ink and clear it from the Name, Type, Data area.

See that big red square with the X in it at the top right of the window?

Seriously... the TAB key switches from left to right panes for you.

Found the answer to my problem. There is a tiny pc at the top of the column that closes it.

I wasn't in any program. I was trying to check out a string in the .inkFile.
What do you mean "Regedit doesn't have that...?
