    Invisible Icon on desktop turns black

    You could do the same trick making a new folder on your desktop (which won't have the 'shortcut' arrow in the corner) unfortunately this also suffers the same 'invisible icon' problem. As this message is for info, why not use an appropriate icon instead? This one is found in shell32.dll

    There are no 'truly' invisible icons in the Windows system, you need to search the web for one.
    (I think they're created from a completely transparent bitmap image, then assigned an .ico extension, or sumpthin like that, I can't remember!)

    Invisible Icon on desktop turns black

    I wanted to display a brief text message on the desktop, so (cleverly) created a shortcut, then changed the title to my string and found an invisible icon in Imageres.ico. Worked great until I restarted explorer. The invisible icon became black and would not change until I replaced it. Perhaps the invisibility of the icon cuts through the desktop image?
