    Trying to make invisible desktop folder - options not working?


    Hey, I have been trying to make a desktop folder invisible. I have had invisible folders since XP...
    On Windows 10 I have an issue of the 'blank icon' being black on my desktop.

    I just don't get it.. I have tried clearing my thumbnail cache, all the 'blank icon' options, made my own icon, and have been scouring the internet.

    I am stumped.

    ..and I hate how they removed the desktop changes every 10 seconds option. I have 4000 images on rotation. Is there a way to add that option back with some sort of file edit?

    You have to download a 'real' blank icon and apply it,

    Have you added @Brink's 'Personalization Classic' menu addition?

    Thank you, I didn't know that existed and was slightly confused.
    As for a good location to download a blank icon?
