After installing Windows 11 Insider Preview 22581.1 (ni_release) update, a watermark is appearing on the desktop. How do I get rid of it? This is actually very annoying!!

Same issu here, luky I had a system image done yesterday and rolled out of insider preview build, since the update are no longer quality update. That worked for my laptop yesterday, an I am rolling my desktop as we speek. This is new, I am guessing that wind does no longer want me in the preview build. To bad. It used to be good with no issues before. Yea the fix worked for me.

That worked for a fix until Microsoft fix the issue, I had a system image done yesterday and rolled back to it, and opted out of preview build. That worked for my laptop yesterday, and I am rolling my desktop as we speak. The previous preview used to be good with no issues before.

@abbodi1406 I personally feel it would have been nice, if instead, it would have been the usual box that each user can have the freedom to close or not, instead of a permanent disruptive watermark.

No Microsoft support has said there should be a fix in the next build to resolve the issue do not use UWD as suggested on some sites as it renders your file explorer inoperable.

What is the use of such a build?? if it is to be removed, what happens after for us users? The window version is a full version and does not expire. Will Microsoft come with another temporary build with a watermark afterward? It never used to be like this, I have joined the program several years back and never had this problem of expiring watermarked beta updates in insider preview. Microsoft will lose a lot of preview build user outing out of window insider release, is that the goal here?

I did not sign up for this release. Why did they invade my computer? I only signed up for quality updates. Why did this happen suddenly? What is the reason after so many years to change the overall delivery of the quality update? It never happened for the past five years I am with preview build update? We wasted so much time trying to fix this when my Windows 11 is fully registered. I never sign up for this sudden change. I never asked for these previous updates with a watermark, it is a bad move.
