  Whenever Microsoft releases a testing build of Windows or service pack, a watermark is always shown on Windows Desktop. This watermark usually shows the build number of Windows or service pack.
Many people don't like this watermark on their Desktop as it hides some part of the wallpaper and sometimes doesn't look nice on Desktop wallpapers.

 Along with the release of Windows 8.1 as an update to Windows 8, Microsoft today released the 90-day trial of Windows 8.1 Enterprise but it comes with windows watermark and its a little bit annoying so here is how to remove it.
