IF you have been using preview versions of Windows, you might have noticed a watermark with the version details on the desktop. This was available with Windows 8.1 and now with Windows 10 as well. Have you ever wondered how to remove this watermark? Microsoft has also clarified that non-genuine versions of Windows 10 will also sport a watermark once the final version is released.

Here is a simple tool called Universal Watermark Disabler, which removes the preview version watermark from your Windows 10. It even works on Windows 8.1 as well.
