Computer manufacturers usually include their OEM brand info and logo in System Properties applet when preinstalling Windows. This article tells you how to add or modify the custom OEM information strings in the System Properties window in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and Windows 10. In Windows 10, the custom strings are shown in the modern Settings app (About your PC page) as well.
Add OEM Information and Logo in System Properties
1. Click Start, type regedit.exe and press ENTER
2. Navigate to the following location
If the OEMInformation key is missing, you’ll need to create one manually.
3. Create string values (REG_SZ) and add matching data, as per the table below:
|Value name||Data||Value type|
|Logo||<Path to your logo file>*||REG_SZ|
|Manufacturer||<System manufacturer name>||REG_SZ|
|Model||<System Model number>||REG_SZ|
|SupportPhone||<OEM Support Phone number>||REG_SZ|
|SupportURL||<OEM Support URL>||REG_SZ|
4. Exit Registry Editor.
* Note: The logo should be a BMP file with the dimension of 120×120. Logos larger than 120×120 pixels are scaled to 120×120.
I’ve customized the support information page by populating it with sample entries. Here is the screenshot:
And the related registry entries.
Windows 10 – System Settings (About) Page
This also works in Windows 10. In Windows 10, the OEM information would be displayed in the classic System information applet as well as in the modern System Settings > About page.
For illustration, I used this settings (in the same key as above).
And this is how it appears in the Settings > System > About page.
However, since the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (v1607), OEM logo is ignored and not displayed in the Settings page.
