Easiest way to remove the Windows watermark from your screen

Posted by in Computer Tips | Last updated on

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.

  1. Get the KMS client product key from Microsoft homepage.

    I wrote a detailed instruction about this step before. It’s here.

  2. Open command prompt as admin.

    Please follow instructions here to run it with admin rights.

  3. Install the key you got above. Type the command then press Enter.

    In this example, I am using Windows 10 Professional so the client key here is “W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX“.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    Hwidgen is used to create a valid and genuine digital license obtained directly from Microsoft Retail Activation Servers, which can be used to activate Windows 10. It’s actually pretty simple and doesn’t mess with system files and leaks.Hdwidgen is such an amazing software.

    It says for me. Can u help me?

    ‘/ato’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

          Your computer system is affected by viruses, damaging files, and items. So make sure that every once in a while, you scan and clean your computer with an antivirus program.

          Yes, automatic renew. Even you pass 180 days, when you online, will do activation again.
