Repo browser: URL always starts "file://" not "svn://"

Warning: Complete newbie to TortoiseSVN and subversion!

I'm currently evaluating source version control options for use by a small
team of programmers, and have installed Subversion on a test server, then
TortoiseSVN on my PC. The aim is to test having a central shared repository
on the server while each team member uses a local working directory to make
code changes, then commits the changes to the central repository using

I have a repository set up OK on the server, and a working directory set up
OK on the PC, but my problem is this: I navigate to the working directory in
Windows Explorer, right click and select TortoiseSVN -> Repo-browser. The
Repository browser URL entry ALWAYS shows a default URL in the "file://"
protocol format (e.g. file://servername/c$/svn_repositories/testproject), so
to make sure I am using svnserve I have to change it to a "svn://" format
(e.g. svn://servername/testproject). I would rather like the default to be
in the "svn://" format. This is despite having used TortoiseSVN -> Settings
-> Save Data and clearing the URL history, and also after using regedit to
delete the key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TortoiseSVN\History\repoURLS].

I read somewhere that it is recommended to use the svn:// protocol instead
of file:// for multiple users to access a central repository. Maybe I am
misunderstanding something in that, or maybe it was an incorrect
recommendation. Does anyone have any advice on this?
