    Windows Build message on desktop


    Three weeks after upgrading from Windows 7 to 10 from Microsoft a message saying "Windows 10 Home Build 10240" appeared in the right-hand corner of my desktop last night. As I like to have a completely clear desktop. no icons etc. this is a nuisance, is it possible to remove it please?

    This page shows how to add that information but at the bottom, before "Join the discussion", it shows how to disable it, may work on Win10 but I didn't try it.
