A BGI file is a configuration file generated by BgInfo, a utility that keeps track of computer configuration information. It stores custom settings chosen by the user within BgInfo.

To use a BGI configuration file instead of the default config (which is stored in the registry), enter the filename (and path) at the the command line. For example:

BGInfo MyConfig.bgi

Important: BgInfo was originally developed by Sysinternals, which was acquired by Microsoft in July, 2006.
