How to Remove “Windows 8 Pro build 9200” Watermark on Windows 8 Desktop

Windows 8 Enterprise and Professional RTM versions are already leaked for download. There is still no KMS Activation available yet, but now you can remove the  Windows 8 Pro build 9200 watermark. It resides at the right bottom corner of Windows 8 desktop.

This task can be easily performed with the help of My WCP Watermark Editor. It is a portable tool to edit the predefined message in watermark with a custom one but we can easily use it to remove the entire watermark. So let’s see how we can remove Windows 8 watermark.

Using My WCP Watermark Editor

As I said earlier, Wcp Watermark Editor is very easy to use. Basically there are not many options to shed sweat with if you just want to remove the watermark. Here are the steps you need to go through while being booted into Windows 8.

  • Open the application and check on the Remove all Watermark option. Ignore rest of the settings.
  • Once done click on to Apply New Settings. It also backups current settings, so you can always revert back to original state safely.

Now close the application and reboot. The changes will be visible only after you have done a complete reboot, I did not change the wallpaper though.

    I reversed engineered the utility for fun, it removes watermarks by editing:

    c:\Windows\System32\en-US\shell32.dll.mui
    c:\Windows\Branding\Basebird\en-US\basebrd.dll.mui

    It looks for the watermark texts and images automatically and changes them to a space in the case of text and changes images with a transparent one. You can do the same thing using resource hacker and editing those files yourself.

    use this to edit them: http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/

    Disclaimer: I giving this advice only for removing the build number which is annoying. You should remove the activation nag by actually activating a legitimate license key. In no way am I telling you that you should do this to remove the activation nags (which you could… but you shouldn’t!).

I have tried your software to remove the watermark on windows 8 enterprise
desktop but I still have “Windows License valid for 90 days” on the desktop. How can I remove it. Do you have a Windows 8 crack or loader?. And can I continue to use the Widows 8 enterprise even after the 90 days trial of expiry date. Thanks

    I guess you may have used KJ Pirate Activator for Windows 8.
    That tool just corrupts system files and edits slmgr.vbs to fool that Windows is activated. It doesn’t actually activates you get an illusion that Windows is activated as it is written in System settings.
