OEMs like HP, Dell, Asus, Lenovo, Acer and Sony add their logo and contact support information to the system (computer properties) section of Windows 10 operating system by default. As you likely know, the system window (system properties) can be found by right-clicking on the This PC (Computer) icon and then clicking Properties option.
In addition to the logo, you can also find OEM’s contact information, computer model name, URL, customer support number, and customer support hours details in system (computer properties) window.
If, for some reason, you want to change the OEM logo and other details, you can do so by making appropriate changes to Windows Registry. Users who don’t want to manually edit the Registry can use third-party utilities to change OEM logo and other information on Windows 10 PCs.
