change your PC’s information for Windows® 8 or 8.1.

Every Microsoft® Windows® operating system provides information about the computer such as the manufacturer, CPU or Processor, RAM size, computer name, operating system version, etc. This information may be helpful if you need to know your work station’s hardware configuration and software build. Users can find this information by clicking on the “Start” icon, then “Computer” and checking under “System properties”, or more simply by using the keyboard shortcut “Winkey + Pause Break”.

If want to change some of this information, you need to go to the system registry and modify values for the proper registry key. If you feel skilled enough to make these changes, read the instructions below to learn how to change your PC’s information for Windows® 8 or 8.1.

Changing the System Registry in Windows® 8 and 8.1:

  1. Press “Winkey + R” keyboard shortcut.
  2. Write “regedit” string and press enter.
  3. Find “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation” key.
  4. You will see values on the right side of the interface or you will have to create them. To create a new string value, name it: Logo, Manufacturer, Model, SupportHours, SupportPhone or SupportURL.
  5. Now you can add the desired values.
