    Probably not, but theres a another way to patch the watermark that's to replace the
    cached wallpaper with one that has no watermark.

    Yup, well done, works like a charm, just to find out the right dimensions to save, not native one, because it cuts all the taskbar......:confused:

    my dumb mistake, i used 1920x1080 image for background, then i think to save the transcoded wallpaper with my screen res 1200x800, but i'm wrong, replace the image with native resolution of the image used for the wallpaper and that's it!

    Can you please be more clear with the instructions as to how to do the replacement? I found TranscodedWallpaper.jpg then replaced it with the non-transcoded one, named TranscodedWallpaper.jpg. Is this right?

    Found a Way to Remove the Watermark, It works first time after restart

    - Unlock Task Bar
    - Move Taskbar to Top of Screen
    - Lock Task Bar
    - Restart PC
    - unlock Taskbar
    - Move Taskbar to Bottom of screen
    - Lock Taskbar

    Done

    1) Select your wallpaper then open the wallpaper in paint or similar resize this to the same resolution as the one found in
    C:\Users\user account\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\C achedFiles\yourwallpaertranscoded.jpg
    2) Rename it with the same filename and overwrite the file and restart.

    It dosent work when the wallpaper changer is on

    Well done fivestar , it actually really doesn't get rid of the watermark but it indeed does hide the watermark so you cant see it.
