Bginfo not updating desktop
For example, if you want to grab the build number of Windows to use as a data point on the desktop, you would click the Registry value and then paste in the full path to a registry key in the Path field.(If you are running 64-bit Windows you would want to check the 64-bit registry view box or your lookup will be redirected to the 32-bit compatibility section of the registry.) The Identifier would then show up in the Fields list, and you can select it to insert into the rich text editor.Clicking the Custom button underneath the Fields box will let you create user-defined fields that display special data that isn’t normally available, including pulling data from the registry, environment variables, WMI, files, or even VB Script.
For best results, you’d want to use the “Copy user’s wallpaper settings” the first time, and then change to the “Use these settings” to specifically select one if necessary.
Once you added this to the list, you would then have access to display the public IP address by adding “publicip” out of the Fields list.
As you can imagine, there is a lot more that you can do with this, to the point of being nearly unlimited.
Once you’ve tweaked and created your configuration (more on that below), you can just save it out to a configuration file to load again any time you need it.
Next you’ll need to make sure that BGInfo updates the information on a somewhat regular basis.
