    I don't blame you for that long.

    I just test the tutorial on my system to see if anything may have change in Windows 10 version 2004, but it still works for me.

    The Two things below are often a common mistake made that you might check again to make sure it's unblocked:

    1) The transparent.ico file downloaded from step 5 must be unblocked before moving it into the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

    2) Restart the explorer.exe process in Task Manger to apply, or sign out and sign in.

    If you like, here's a .reg file below you can download and merge to make sure the registry entries are correct for the C:\Windows\System32\transparent.ico file to see if it may help any.

    Shell_Icons.reg

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons]
    "179"="C:\\Windows\\System32\\transparent.ico"
