Software Product Description

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.

Pros: Extremely customisable and handy tool especially for server administrators in large environments. Have been using the tool widely in my Server 2000/2003 days.

Cons: It doesn't work in certain scenario's where the desktop background might be disabled. A typical example my be VNC or RDP sessions.

Other Thoughts: There are other tools which do not complely replace the background. A nice little widget/tool you might want to try is called "Server Info" which was developed by a guy named "Nathan Owen". This was one I ultimately ended up using, but there are plenty out there that do the same thing.
