I had previously written about winning a Free Cell game.  Here are some cool tricks which can be used with other games like Pinball, Minesweeper, Solitaire and Hearts.

Hearts
1.   Open the Registry Editor by Start -> Run and  type "regedit" (without quotes) and press Enter.
2.   Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Hearts 
3.   Right-click on the right panel and create a new String value and name it "ZB" (without quotes).
4.   Double-click the value "ZB" and edit its value. Enter "42" (without quotes) and close the Registry Editor.
5.   Start Hearts game and when you press Ctrl + Alt + Shift + F12, it shows all the cards.

Solitaire




1.   Instant Win :  Press Alt + Shift + 2 after opening the game to instantly win the game.

2.   Draw only one card instead of three :   Press Ctrl + Alt + Shift and then click on unopened card to draw.

Minesweeper : While you are playing a game, press Windows Key + D to go to the desktop.  Go back to the Minesweeper, the timer has stopped.


Pinball
1.   Unlimited Balls: Type bmax at a new game to get unlimited balls. 

2.   Extra Balls: Type 1max at a new game to get extra balls. 

3.   Gravity Well: Type gmax at a new game to activate Gravity Well. 

4.   Promotion: Type rmax at a new game or while playing to get instant promotion and raising rank. 

5.   Extra points with partial shots: Partially shoot the ball just to pass the yellow light bars. There are 6 bars. With the first bar, you'll get 15,000 points, 2nd: 30,000, and so on.
