Let’s take a look at how you can get rid of the pesky watermark in the corner of your screen in a few easy steps!

Do the Notepad Trick

One of the easiest and most recognized ways of removing the pesky little watermark in the corner of your screen is doing a simple trick with the pre-installed Notepad app. Yes, the Notepad app you use on a daily.

By pasting some text and using an administrator account, you can easily remove the “Activate Windows” watermark from appearing on your screen. Here’s how to do it.

  • Launch the Notepad application and create a new, blank note.
  • Copy and paste the following block of text into your Notepad
    @echo off
    taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe

⦁ Go to File, then click on Save as. Name the file Activation.bat and change the file format to All files.

⦁ Choose the location where the file becomes easily reachable, and click the Save button. We recommend saving files like this on your Desktop to maximize accessibility.

⦁ Right-click on the file and choose Run as administrator. If you don’t have this option, you’re not signed into an account with admin permissions.

Restart your device and enjoy life without watermarks!
