Remove Windows Technical Preview marking

Hello all! I am sure that many of you after installing the operating system have noticed on your desktop strange inscription: Windows Technical Preview. It indicates that your OS must be activated. In this article I will tell you how to remove the inscription activation Windows 10, to get rid of headaches in the future (when Microsoft starts blocking some features).

I myself often encounter this problem when acquaintances ask me to configure the PC, optimize the system, etc. Let me tell you right away, this message is very easy to fix. There are a lot of third party applications that effectively cope with the task. But I recommend using proven software, which will be discussed below.

Remove Windows 10 watermark

WCP Watermark Editor

How to use? It’s very simple. Launch the program, check the box that says “Remove all watermarks” and click the “Apply” button. After a few minutes of waiting annoying message will disappear from the desktop. You can download the software from this link below.


Windows Loader

This way worked even on Windows XP. Perhaps the same will work on Windows 10. Search for this utility on the internet, but before running it check for viruses, since most of these programs are infected. Use this program at your own risk. The interface is understandable even to a beginner. You are required to press a single button – “Activate”. The procedure will take about 5 minutes and then the PC should be restarted. The next time you run it, you will make sure that the test mode is disabled.

Windows 7 activator


This application works with different versions of Microsoft OS, including “ten”. The advantage of this method is that the software does not really “dig” into the files, and allows you to remove only what you need. A big plus is the Russian-language interface. In terms of functionality – this is the most powerful tool of all those I have listed. But if we are just talking about removing the “watermark”, all the described applications perfectly cope with this task.


How to remove the inscription without using any software?

If you are not looking for easy ways, try implementing the following method. Removing the process that checks whether the trial version or the full version is installed on your PC will help. To do this, you need to:

  1. Go to the “Installed Updates” list, which is located at: “Control Panel” – “Components and programs”.
  2. Look for this package in the list – KB971033, then uninstall it.
  3. Stop “Windows Software Protection” service.
  4. In the folder System32, remove hidden files, which have the extension “.C7483456-A289-439d-8115-601632D005A0”.
  5. Important! Start the service that you disabled in step 3.
  6. Restart the system and enjoy the result.

If you have something that does not work, the inscription still does not disappear (even after using all the methods), write to the comments and we will definitely figure it out.
