A few days ago I received instructions for modifying a line in registry to allow display of OS, version in lower right corner of desk top.

Can't find it now. Does anyone have and answer for me.

I think the registry key you are looking for is: KEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

Now, on the right hand side, double click "PaintDesktopVersion" and change the value to 1 (one).

Click OK and restart.
