UPS just dropped off your new gaming rig, the one you were so excited to get from eBay. But there’s a small problem, you see a Windows watermark on the lower right side of your screen. You can reboot all you want, it’s not going anywhere. This is what you call an inactivated copy of Windows or a “striped down” version. You get no updates and miss out on a ton of nice to have features. 👑
If you’ve had the experience of using an inactivated copy of Windows for any length of time, you know how annoying it can be to work around a giant Windows watermark all the time. 😠 In this post I tell you how to remove it.
Note: this does not “activate” your copy of Windows, this just removes the watermark.
1. Open Notepad.
2. Copy and Paste the following script into it:
@echo off taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe explorer.exe exit
3. Save the file as “activation.bat”. To do this click the drop-down menu to, all files. You could save it to your desktop so it’s easily found or anywhere you like.
4. Double click your newly created batch file and restart your computer. (delete the file when finished or zip it up and save it for a rainy day) ⛈
