    I installed the build 9926, but now I have a watermark that says:
    Activate Windows
    Go to PC settings to activate windows
    The watermark is on top f every screen even the notifications.
    I tried to activate windows, but the online version doesn't work and my Windows 8 key is not for this version.
    Anyone know how to get rid of it, because it makes it hard to read notifications.

    There is a product key on the download page of Windows 10. Go to the activation page in settings, find the option to change the product key and enter the new one, then try to activate again.

    I tried both, the wcp only removes thuis build watermark.
    The key on the site "doesn't work for my version of windows".
    More suggestions?

    Nothing else I can think of. I didn't user the key on the site because I upgraded with Windows Update.
    Anyone else had a problem with the key on the site?

    I did the same, but it's still there. Maybe it will be solved in the next update.

    Open cmd prompt, then
    slmgr -dlv
    What does it show for Name, Product Key Channel, Partial Product Key and License Status?
