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;

TortoiseSVN

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers

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!

    The registry set correctly, but the icons are only shown when I am in admin mode. When I switch to restricted user mode there are no icon overlays

      Hi, you could try being logged into a Standard user. Running Regedit as an administrator, whilst being logged in as a Standard User to see if this resolves the issue.

    Is there any way of doing this without regedit? Our admins have disabled registry editing.

      Unfortunately not. You will require admin privileges in order to do this. Your next best bet is to go to them with the issue presented and as well as the blog post and show/explain to them what needs to be fixed.
