How to Remove "Activate Windows" Watermark from your Screen

The "Activate Windows" watermark will only come up if your activation key is expired and if you would like to remove the watermark from your screen; I have a better way to re-activate your windows using the 180-day trial license.

We'll be learning how to remove the Windows watermark using the KMS client key or by using a simple CMD prompt.

  • 1. Now, Open the command prompt as the administrator
  • Next, use the "slmgr /ipk yourlicensekey" command to install a license key. In this example, I am using Windows 10 Professional so the client key here is “W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX“.
(yourlicensekey in the above code  is the activation key that corresponds to your Windows edition).

  • Now, Click on "Enter" to run the command
  • The next thing to do is to set the KMS machine address;
  • Use "slmgr /skms" to connect to my KMS server
  • Finally, activate your windows by running the "slmgr /ato" in CMD

If you see the error 0x80070005, it means the server is busy. Please try the command “ato” again until you succeed.

Now check your activation status again 😎

That's it.

If after you've followed the above steps and the watermark is not removed, it means your Windows is not activated successfully. In this case, you can drop a comment below.



This procedure is similar to the above step, the only difference is that it your windows will remain unactivated but the error message will no longer display on your laptop screen.

You may have to copy the command prompt below, then follow the instructions after it to remove the watermark permanently.

  1. Go to your search bar, type CMD, and run the app as an administrator
  2. Paste the copied command prompt into the box and hit "ENTER"
  3. RESTART YOUR PC and the Watermark should have disappeared from your screen.
