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.
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!
