Unhappy Windows 10 Trial Watermark

Anyone using a windows 10 trial here, any method to prevent the bottom right corner watermark from appearing? It's very annoying and even appear inside games too.

I think it still works that you can merely navigate in regedit to:
Quote:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\svsvc
and change the value of key Start from 3 to 4.

Note this simple step does not activate Windows but it should remove the watermark... I don't know if it still works on very recent Windows 10 builds like 1909. There is also a Universal Watermark Disabler app by PainteR you can easily find out there that probably still works.

If you want to reverse it all and crack it yourself, msoobe.exe is a good starting point as its responsible for a lot of the activation code.

ehhh...
I think @chants wanted to say: sppsvc
and msoobe is not responsible for activation it is resonsible for the OOBE Phase.
sppsvc, slc.dll and so on are the best starting point.

to glitch any features in Win10 you should take a look into

If you're using the machine full-time, you can buy cheap OEM keys on Ebay for like $2 for Win10. There are also VL servers around the web you can force the machine to connect to and use a license from that for free.

Have you try Microsoft Activation Scripts

"A collection of scripts for activating Microsoft products using HWID / KMS38 / Online KMS activation methods with a focus on open-source code, less antivirus detection and user-friendliness."

The real activation of Windows is handled in the kernel by some heavily protected code (search Warbird), I think the protection is just too difficult for most people visiting this forum to attack. The slshim and the Product Policy Editors are just workarounds in the userland with lot of limitations.
