Remove watermark from Windows 10 desktop
Follow given below instructions to completely remove watermark from Windows 10 desktop.
Important: We recommend you create a system restore point before running this tool, as this tool edits one or more original system files.
Step 1: Download Universal Watermark Remover zip file.

Step 3: Right-click on UWD file and then Run as administrator option to launch the tool.
Step 4: Finally, click Install button to see the following message box.
NOTE: If you see a message that the software has not been tested on the current build of Windows 10, we advise you wait for the developer to update the software to support the latest or final build of Windows 10.
Step 5: Click OK button to automatically sign out (save your work!). Sign-in again to see your Windows 10 desktop minus the watermark.
