    Invisible Icon Turning Black After Computer Restart


    So when I make an invisible icon, it is fine until I restart my computer then it turns black, of before restart and after. Anyone got a fix for this problem?

    Zip the icon.

    Click the Go Advanced buttom at the bottom right of Quick Reply.
    Click the paperclip icon beside the smileys icon.
    Upload the zipped icon.
    Click the tiny black down arrow to select the zip file.
    Click the zip file.
    It will be added AT THE POSITION OF THE BLINKING CURSOR.

    That's it.

    Idk it isn't even letting me zip files anymore on my Windows 8 system, do you have any idea why the icon turns black?

    Make a Folder Invisible is how I did it, so you can have a better understanding

    OK.

    I tried it & I get a black icon too.
    With SMALL icons.
    I reset icon size to medium & my icon disappeared !
