I use my desktop all time. But when I want to walk around I use my laptop or tablet. This is a great tool for someone lie me...someone who does a lot of the same work on different machines throughout the day.

BGInfo becomes a handy tool when managing multiple computers, from automatically displaying relevant information about your Windows PC, like computer name, IP address, and service pack version. It sounds like a complex system, however it really isn't. The BGInfo, personally, I would recommend it for anyone doing IT work and is functioning multiple computer operating systems at once for maximum performance.

Each and every time you boot you get all the system info for your device using this software and even better it allows you to keep the long-running systems to date by creating a scheduler that runs this software often. You independently select the location where this info will be displayed and even the background color. It is amazing that you don't have to go through a whole process to get system info. Thank you BGInfo!!!!!

This is good software, with nice appearance buttons, configuration menu. The command-line option is exceptional. The app seems to be easy to use, effective, and reliable. The display for the app in the background is good. BgInfo is generally a nice app from the look, easily available, and makes work easy when using. I like the software very much, I could prefer using this software to any other.

BGInfo for Windows is great for individuals who are using multiple computers at once. This system automatically displays important information about the computer such as the IP address and computer name, plus more. This information is easy to locate and see on the computer's desktop. The best part is that you can edit what information about the computer you want to see on the desktop. The system itself is user-friendly and understandable.

BGInfo displays information about your Windows PC, such as IP address, computer name, and service pack information, on your desktop’s background. When BGInfo is placed in your startup folder, it will help ensure that important system information is accurate and up to date. You can also ensure that long-running systems are accurate by running BGInfo on a regular schedule (you can use Windows Scheduler for this).

BGInfo is a great tool for quickly and easily creating a comprehensive overview of a system's current configuration. It collects data from multiple sources and displays it in an easy to read format. I have found it very useful in quickly troubleshooting problems. It also saves a lot of time compared to manually going through the system and gathering the same information. I have used BGInfo in both Windows and Linux environments and it has worked great in both. It has a lot of different options that can be configured to suit your specific needs. The software is also very lightweight and doesn't slow down the system. All in all, BGInfo is a great tool that can make life a lot easier.

This software effectively displays system information on the desktop background. It is easy to configure and customize the information displayed. The only drawback is that it can be distracting if too much information is displayed.
