The DEBUG version has watermark and popup. It's quite normal since it's an EXPERIMENTAL version. Make a second virtual desktop, move the debug windows there.

You mean the dwm.exe? It's already on other desktop, so I don't see it in taskbar.

If so, you'll only see the desktop watermark and the occasional popup.

It's not quite normal at all, you're just caught in Bigmuscle's Stockholm Syndrome where outside of not using AeroGlass at all, you don't really have a choice but to use his crippleware riddled with endless debug windows and watermarks, even though you "donated", so after enough time using it you consider it normal. If you open your eyes and look at other similar software like StartIsBack, you will find that what is "normal" is actually to call a spade a spade and instead of this weird "donation" system just calling it a purchase/licence, and disable all nagging as soon as sufficient money has been exchanged.

Of course, cue people saying "Nobody is forcing you to use AeroGlass" in 3...2...1...

So, there is no way to get rid of the watermark whatsoever? It's absurd.

It will go away as soon as the final 1.5.9 version is released. The watermark is the only reason I haven't updated to Build 1803 of Windows yet.

@mufunyo : i'm not caught in anything, i just don't see why this is a big deal (having that watermark). Each to its own, i guess.

I personally don't consider the watermark a big deal, as I don't often stare at the bottom right of my desktop anyway. It just makes no sense for the watermark to be there on debug versions when you've donated. The watermark serves no purpose other than to annoy you, it doesn't display any useful debug info or even which debug build you're using. It's just the digital equivalent of scent marking urine.

I have to say, I think that people who have paid for the donation key shouldn't have to see the watermark.  I also wish the dwm windows would go away, in favor of some kind of text log report that you could provide if there are any bugs with the program

I have to say I fully understand the debug-window and don't mind it at all but yeah having the watermark there after having donated just rubs me the wrong way personally. That and it also conflicts with my Rainmeter setup.

If you use dual monitors, there will be no watermark. Also, what happened, was I banned, why did it not let me log in to my account or use forget my password?

Did you register after February 2018? MSFN had a server-crash and lost all data after February 2018. And I use dual-monitors but I have the second always disabled unless I need it.
