A fine looking desktop, except for one little thing: the watermark in the bottom-right corner.
I wish to remove it. I would prefer to avoid untrusted software for a cosmetic change. How can it be done safely?
This should no longer be an issue when you apply the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607, Build 14393.10). The watermark is gone.
I ran into the same issue - the watermark drives me nuts. I managed to come up with a temporary fix for the problem. Note that it involved editing a system hex file, and while I haven't experienced anything going wrong so far, I cannot promise it won't come with negative consequences. Perform at your own risk.
You'll need HexEdit (or another hex file editor) to perform these steps; I used HexEdit for this guide and it works just fine with Windows 10.
However, it looks like when you restart your computer, the watermark comes back. Editing the basebrd.dll.mui hex file through HexEdit will show it unchanged. Opening the file, saving it again, and then changing the desktop background will quickly allow you to remove the watermark upon booting. I’ll be looking into a more permanent fix in the meantime.
For a few more details/images, I also covered this in my blog post.
uwd.exefrom the zip-file. It will tell you which Windows version you're using.
Now the watermark is gone. Of course, this is at your own risk.
Just use an all white background or edit your background picture with a white spot under the build version.
