  1. 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?

  2. Windows 10 desktop icons keeps dissapearing

    My Windows 10 desktop Icons (file folders and not shortcuts) keeps disappearing. What makes this disappearance weird is that the files of the invisible Icons are still available in the Desktop folder (using the file explorer). If I try to copy this files
    from the desktop directory back to the desktop page, its says files already exist in the source folder.

    Please, I need a permanent workaround for this.

  3. Can't create an invisible folder

    Hi,

    If you want a folder in the Desktop that is not visible, you will have to hide that folder. To hide a folder, right click on the folder, in the "General' tab, check the box against' Hidden'. This will hide the folder and make it invisible. Hope this helps,
    let us know if you have any further queries.
