LCD Items Descriptions

Recommended Posts

When creating screens for my G19, I rarely choose to use the Label option for new items. The screen is small and there just isn't enough room for all those labels on the display. However, when managing items on the LCD Items Screen, having the ability to assign a description (other than the Label) for identification purposes would be a very nice feature. Just a description to differentiate the LCD Items from each other; the description would not be displayed on the LCD Screen, just in AIDA64 preferences > LCD Items screen. So either a new field/column (Description) with a text value that would not be displayed on the LCD Screen, or a checkbox to suppress the Item Label from being displayed on the LCD.

Thanks. I can't take complete credit for it. The background is just taken from the AIDA64 product graphics:

And the gray boxes I borrowed from this thread:

Finally, you can find my versions of the finished background in this thread

I have attached the most recent versions of my G19 LCD Screen graphics for use with AIDA64...

There is a config file that stores everything. You just need to back that up. On Windows 7 it resides in

C:\Program Files (x86)\FinalWire\AIDA64 Extreme Edition\aida64.ini

If you are on another version of windows and can't find it, just search your windows install drive for aida64.ini and you should be able to find it easy enough. Save this file before you uninstall, then after you reinstall, just overwrite the new file with the one you backed up. This file includes all of your LDC Items Settings (to access from AIDA64, click File > Preferences then navigate to LCD > LCD Items. All of the Items, BMP's and Labels you setup there get stored to the aida64.ini file.

As a side note, if you are currently using Everest, the software and file structure is pretty much identical, so if you are converting over from Everest to AIDA64 and have already setup some LCD Items in Everest, just find your everest.ini file, back it up or save it somewhere, uninstall Everest, then install AIDA64. After you install AIDA64, rename your everest.ini file to aida64.ini and overwrite C:\Program Files (x86)\FinalWire\AIDA64 Extreme Edition\aida64.ini with the renamed file.

Hope that makes sense...here is another thread on this topic if you want to read more

If you paid for an Everest license, you can transfer it to AIDA64 (or at least I was able to...don't know if that is a limited or temporary offer, but you should jump on it sooner rather than later if you are a current Everest user)
