If you ever purchased a Windows 11/10 PC from most popular brands like Dell, Lenovo, HP, Samsung, etc, chances are you might have noticed the manufacturer’s name and logo in the system section.
This OEM information includes information about a computer’s make and model, a custom logo, and support information that hides under the ‘System’ section of the Windows Control panel. The information is provided with the sole purpose of assisting users. You will not find it if you have a custom-built computer or have installed a clean copy of Windows.
If you wish, you can easily edit, add or change the OEM information by using a free tool or modifying the registry.
