    Windows 10 Education Watermark

    The watermark is there by default even on fully licenced copies of the Education version of Windows 10.

    It can be removed using a HEX editor, see
    this article


    Do not attempt this if you are in any unsure of what you are doing!

  3. Watermark is back

    Same here. I guess this is the reward we get for being windows beta testers. I hate the watermark and I will be leaving the Windows Insider program as soon as another stable build shows up and I can get this stupid watermark removed. How do you remove the watermark :(

    You're not supposed to.
    Only legit way is to go to PC Settings►Ease of Access►Other options►Visual options►'Show Windows background' - turn off.

    Hi there

    Enterprise or non enterprise version. Also did you have to activate with the product key.

    I've got the TECHNET version but I think it's identical.

    Cheers

    non enterprise. I have no real requirement for the extras. Pre activated. On the MSDN subscription site, it states that.

    Hi there

    Same on TechNet (identical) -- I'm about to do a NEW install as a HOST (not an upgrade and not a VM) so I'll see.

    I went for the ENTERPRISE version because I rather like the Windows to Go - otherwise I would have just taken the "Normal" version. !!

    Cheers

    Good luck - but I don't think you will need it!

    I did think I had a bad download, as it took a lot longer to burn to a DVD than is normal. This was followed by a remarkably long install, maybe for the same reason. To the final desktop, discounting time for my input, took 32 minutes.

    How do you remove the watermark

    Wish mine had been that quick *Smile

    Around 90 minutes to install the X86 version and reach the desktop, due entirely to a buggy WiFi driver that W10 installs. I can't get to it to disable it and install the correct one until after its all finished and during that time its killing the CPU at 100% usage.. Twenty minutes on "getting your devices ready", and another twenty on "almost done" or whatever it calls it. Same for "installing apps".
