It’s easy to customize Windows XP’s General tab in the System Properties dialog box with your support contact information and your company’s logo just by using Notepad. Here’s how:
- Launch Notepad and type the following text, replacing the dummy information shown here with your own:
[General]Manufacturer=Yethz PC Model=5551212
[Support Information]Line1=Call Me for technical support Line2=Call Me for technical support Line3=Call Me for technical support Line4=Call Me for technical support
- Save the file in the C:WindowsSystem32 folder as Oeminfo.ini.
- To add your logo to the General tab, create a 256-color BMP file that is 96 by 96 pixels in size.
- SSave the file in the C:WindowsSystem32 folder as Oemlogo.bmp.
After you create the files, you can check the results immediately by pressing [Windows][Break]. This will quickly bring up the System Properties dialog box.
