[Windows]: How to Add Custom Logo to Your PC

If you have bought your PC from an OEM vendor, most likely you will see their logo and support information when you open the System Properties (Control Panel -> System). OEM vendors often use this trick to advertise their services, create brand awareness, and also give your PC an air of professionalism. Now, with a few simple steps, you can easily replace the logo with your own and trick others into believing that you are the own vendor of your PC.

Open up any photo editing program and create a 180 x 114 pixels image. Save the image as a bitmap (.bmp) and name it oemlogo.bmp. Next, open up your notepad and create a text file with the following format:

[General]
Manufacturer=Make Tech Easier
Model=MTE Super Computer

[Support Information]
line1=For even more great tips visit
line2=http://maketecheasier.com

and save it as oeminfo.ini. Now, place both the bmp and ini file in C:\Windows\System32 folder.

Open up your System Properties, you should see your own logo and support information in the panel.
