BgInfo: Display system info on your desktop

Bookmark and Share

If you are a administrator or software test engineer or any professional who deal with bunch of system everyday then you might find this post useful.

Every time we land on the system, we spend considerable amount of time to dig into system configuration. This is especially a case with virtualization where each image could have its own configuration.

Now there is a way to circumvent this situation using a nifty tool called BgInfo from Sysinternals (Now part of MS). BgInfo displays whole lot of customized information on your desktop such as computer name, IP address, logon server, boot time, registry values, file versions etc.
