File Extension BGI

.BGI File

File extension: BGI
File type: Configuration File

Notes about the BGI file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The BGI file type is primarily associated with 'BGInfo' by Bryce Cogswell. BGInfo automatically displays relevant information about a Windows computer on the desktop's background. Information such as the computer name, IP address, service pack version, and more. You can edit any field, the font and background colors, and can place it in your startup folder so that it runs every boot, or configure it to display as the background for the logon screen.
