:thumbsup: 1st time to post---sorry, no idea what I'm doing even AFTER reading all the instructions. I had the phrase Windows XP Professional and the build # in the right hand bottom corner of my screen just pop up out of :flowers: nowhere, well obviously somewhere. I wasn't in any place I wasn't supposed to nor did I do anything I wasn't supposed to. Unfortunately, I have no idea where I had been because I was doing a number of things trying to see if I had any problem in my system. Mainly diagnostic stuff. Neither do I know what order I did some things. I took a screenshot (and if it's not right I'm real new to doing that so...right now you get what you get). I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer to me. Please understand that I am technically challenged so as simple as you can make it would be super.

Hello crzyallday0514,

If you (or someone else) used the Tweak UI utility from Microsoft, there is a checkbox option in Tweak UI to do just that (i.e., display the Windows version on the desktop). I use that option on my system:

"Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP" (includes Tweak UI):

If that is what happened, it is nothing to worry about.
