What is a BGI file?
Bgi file extension has BgInfo Configuration file type, developed by Microsoft, which is associated with the "settings files" category.
Bginfo – a tool for monitoring PC configuration information – is responsible for creating files with this extension as it uses them to save user’s preferences. BgInfo was developed by Sysinternals, but Microsoft bought the company in 2006. The program allows using BGI configuration files instead of the default ones (stored in the registry). In order to do that, you must type the file’s name in the command line, for example, "BGInfo LastSavedConfig.bgi".
