Add OEM Information and Logo in System Properties and Settings Page in Windows

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

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

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
SupportHours <Support hours> 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.

Sample

I’ve customized the support information page by populating it with sample entries. Here is the screenshot:

add OEM information

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.

  2. Hi !!!

    Tried & succeeded at last. It only allows information like Manufacturer, Model, Support hours, Support phone & Support URl appear so do not try to create extra strings or keys as they will be useless. Seems its pre-defined. Also check out for the logo size. It should be less than 200 pixels. Thanks

  4. One thing I found helpful for my situation is to change the support website information to the email address of the helpdesk. Just add “mailto:%20” before the address and it will open outlook for the user to send an email to the helpdesk. An example would be to add: mailto:%20helpdesk@blahblah.com

    Thanks for this guide. I have been trying to do this through sysprep but the information doesn’t show up when I’m done.
