    Watermark Removal Anyone???


    Anyone any clues about doing that? I used one fix I found online but that only removed the build number and not the huge Microsoft Confidential blurb.

    Edit: This thread was about the Developer Preview but has been solved for the Consumer Preview, see post #28.

    You don't get the "huge Microsoft Confidential blurb" in the Dev Preview version, unless you've disabled the immersive/Metro UI with one of the hacks to do so.

    Ah....well maybe I'll try reinstating the Metro thingies and try to cope with occasionally getting stuck on certain screens with no clear way out.

    Thanks

    Not sure exactly how you mean getting stuck with no clear way out. If it's anything related to this, I outlined plenty of ways to do so.

    I just spotted that and thanks for posting it. I seem to still have a remnant on the regular desktop.

    Must be something else then. I only get it if I apply a Metro disable hack.

    What's with the background blue color there, is that a custom background, or..?

    Why do people want to remove that watermark? its a buggy build of an old OS pretending to be new, sooner it expires the better.
