  1. This is useful but needs a little extra. How can we hide the email address details from the System Properties page ?

    Every time I want to show off that I’m using a 11th Gen i7 CPU or 64GB RAM, I have to show my personal email address – that should be easily hidable as an option but I can’t find it.
