After reading many instructions on the internet, I realize that the authors are using the same method, which is to edit registry to remove the Windows watermark on the bottom-right corner of the screen. You might not know, registry is like the heart of a Windows system. Honestly, intervention in registry is very risky and not recommend. There is a better way and not generally known, which is activate your Windows using a 180-day trial license. In this post today, we will move in this direction.
Time needed: 1 minute.
Remove the Windows watermark using KMS client key.
- Get the KMS client product key from Microsoft homepage.
I wrote a detailed instruction about this step before. It’s here.
- Open command prompt as admin.
Please follow instructions here to run it with admin rights.
- Install the key you got above. Type the command then press Enter.
In this example, I am using Windows 10 Pro so the client key here is “W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX“.
- Set main KMS server.
kms8 is one of servers I have managed. You can also use other public servers on the Net if they are from a credible source.
- Activate your Windows using “ato” command.
Once your Windows is activated successfully, the watermark will be removed automatically.
Note: After following the steps above, if the watermark is not removed, it means your Windows is not activated successfully. In this case, you can create a ticket in the community or email me.
