Saving the TextBox Values in Registry

I need some guidance in reading/writing/saving the values in Registry.I am new to this concept of saving things in registry

I have a Winform where i have to read/write to a App.config file and change the username and password using a winform.In my winform i have 2 textboxes and when i enter values and hit submit it changes the values in app.config.I somehow did that and no issues.

Now I need to send what ever values I have entered in the Textboxes to registry and save them thr and I should also be able to read them.

How shoud I do that ?

Answer

Here is a quick code:

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey exampleRegistryKey = Microsoft.Win32.Registry.CurrentUser.CreateSubKey("ExampleTest");
    exampleRegistryKey.SetValue("Name", textBox1.Text);
    exampleRegistryKey.Close();
}

Now if you run regedit and must see under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ExampleTest
