  • Visible is an option for Notebook which specifies whether the notebook should be explicitly displayed on the screen.
  • With Visible->False a notebook can still be manipulated from the kernel, but will not explicitly be displayed on the screen.
  • NotebookCreate[Visible->False] creates a new invisible window.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.10.13.
