Something which has not been talked about much on the Internet is how to create a folder without any icon. We will see how it is done in Windows 11/10, but the procedure is the same in earlier Windows versions too.
Create a folder without any icon
Right-click on your desktop and create a new folder. In this case, I have named it TWC.
Next, right-click on the folder and select Properties. Click on the Customize tab, and then on the Change icon button, under Folder icons.
A new box will open. For your information, System icons are found at the following location:
Move the slider and browse to a blank icon from the list displayed and select it. Click OK and then Apply. See the image above.
You will see the icon disappear and just the name remain.
If this particular bank icon did not work for you, try some other blank icon.

How to make blank folder names on laptops with no Numpad?
You need to enable the Num Pad on a laptop.
To enable Numpad you should be able to click the Shift+Num Lock keys to enable/disable it. This allows you to use numbers for the letter keys. Some use the ‘FN+Num lk’ key combo to enable/disable. You’ll find that the Numpad keys are shared with the numbers 7, 8, 9, and the letters U, I, O, J, K, L and M.
Once you have enabled it, press “fn+num lk”, and then pressed MJOM keys to get 0160 numeric to get a name-less folder on your laptop!
