BgInfo on Windows 10

After the recent Windows 10 update to version 1511, the bgInfo wallpaper wasn’t refreshing, which meant that fields such as the snapshot date rapidly became illegible:

Click on the Background button.

Mine was set to Copy user’s wallpaper settings, which I assume is the default. 

Change that to ‘Use these settings’ and set your preferred background up.

Click OK on this dialogue, then Apply on the main BgInfo screen; all will be well again.
