Windows XP Desktop watermark


Recommended Posts

I know how to enable the Windows Version number on the bottom right hand corner of the screen - and I know how to modify this under Windows Vista... I'm hoping to modify the Windows XP version number displayed at the bottom right corner of the screen to use as a watermark telling users what SOE version the machine is running for easy identification.

Does anyone know how to modify the version number information - or know of any other tool to add a desktop watermark that is not movable around the desktop or removable?

I have tried BGINFO by SysInternals, but it butchers the background image in use and makes the company logo all pixelated.

How many times have you walked up to a system in your office and needed to click through several diagnostic windows to remind yourself of important aspects of its configuration, such as its name, IP address, or operating system version If you manage multiple computers you probably need BGInfo. It automatically displays relevant information about a Windows computer on the desktop's background, such as the computer name, IP address, service pack version, and more. You can edit any field as well as the font and background colors, and can place it in your startup folder so that it runs every boot, or even configure it to display as the background for the logon screen.

Because BGInfo simply writes a new desktop bitmap and exits you don't have to worry about it consuming system resources or interfering with other applications. BgInfo works on Windows 2000 SP4 Rollup 1 or above.
