Icons not showing TortoiseSVN Windows 10 – I had come across this issue after upgrading a machine as I use a source repository regularly. For some reason (I believe after a Windows 10 update) the icons for TortoiseSVN decided to disappear causing me great frustration.
How to resolve the problem
Anyway to solve the problem… open the registry editor and navigate to;
Windows explorer supports at maximum 15 custom overlay icons – they are shared between multiple applications (Google drive, One drive, Tortoise SVN). If you have multiple applications installed – the first ones in list will display their icons, rest of applications won’t.
I generally found most of mine were being used up by OneDrive so decided to remove them all as TortoiseSVN icons are more important for day-to-day.
A restart will be needed after the change but after that the icons should be showing!
