    Converting Numbers to Hex Values
    Or Converting Hex Values to Regular Numbers.
    You may already know how to do this without calculator, but this isn't for advanced people only for people who aren't good with hex editing.

    I have decided to make a tutorial for people who don't know how to change numbers to hex values. It will be a picture tutorial, but it is still very simple, there may be other ways to do this but i am showing you my easy way.
    NOTE:
    Only for windows or vista, may be able to done with Mac.

    First off, open your calculator by going to start > all programs > accessories > Caculator (Process may be done a different way on vista, but it about the same)

    Next once calculator is up, click view > click scientific

    Now you can convert hex values (numbers) to regular numbers. For example the bar in the picture shows what you start out with, so if i am starting out with Dec (which is regular numbers) then i could type in a number the hit hex and it would show the number in a hex number, or you switch it up hex first then Dec. (Dec is Decimal) Here is me doing it:

    Now I hit hex, and it converted to a hex number.

    Also you can change whether the number is going to show up in a QWORD, DWORD, Word, or BYTE

    Definitions:
    Qword - 6 sets of numbers including 2 numbers in each set ex. (00 00 00 00 00 00)
    Dword - 4 sets of numbers including 2 numbers in each set ex. (00 00 00 00)
    Word - 2 sets of numbers including 2 numbers in each set ex. (00 00)
    Byte - 1 set of numbers including 2 numbers in each set ex. (00)

    Hope this was helpful

    ... a tutorial on calculator? I assumed most people would know this or that it would actually show how to mathematically convert decimal to hexidecimal...
    Anyways, I guess it will help new people. And it's very thorough.
