    The OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) support information in Windows includes the logo, manufacturer, model, support hours, support phone, and support URL for your PC.

    If you purchased a PC from a vendor, it'll usually already have all of the OEM support information in the "System" window in Settings and Control Panel.

    If you build your own PCs, then you can add your own support information.

    This tutorial will show you how to customize the OEM support information for your Windows 10 PC.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to customize OEM support information.
