Re: Desktop context menu whitespace

Create the registry DWORD value
HKCU\Software\Tort​oiseSVN\ShowContext​MenuIcons, then set the value to
This will make TSVN not show any icons, which will 'fix' the issue
you're seeing.

This was originally suggested for Win2000. Does it work for XP as well?

Below includes hardware and software details. Anyone know how to try to get Intel to fix something like this? It's way outside my area of expertise.

Bug report I drafted before finally finding the previous report (which doesn't seem as serious as my problem).

I right-clicked my desktop to get the context menu for graphics properties (exteneded desktop, physical layout, primary monitor, and so forth), screen rotation, and/or TortoiseSVN.

I expected the context menu to look normal, with all of the text readable.

The text was pushed way to the right, as if there were immense right margins. Roughly four characters fit, they overlie any "more options in a sub-menu this way" arrowheads, and the rest of the text wasn't there (no visible spill-over outside of the white area of the context menu). Screenshot attached.

Computer: Dell 610

CPU: Intel Pentium M 1.60GHz

Graphics card: Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family

Driver Version:
Driver Date: 6/6/2006

OS: Windows XP Pro Version 2002 SP2

Context menu-related software: I have an Intel graphics card, with the associated software, that supports extended desktop across two monitors. I also have Samsung Magic Rotation software installed to support my SyncMaster 204B monitor, which (not suprisingly), rotates (mostly landscape to portrait). It adds five items to the context menu:
Rotate (applies a 90 degree counter-clockwise rotation from the current position)
90 (rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise from the normal landscape orientation, which supports regular landscape moder (the physical monitor rotates clockwise)
180 (rotated 180 CCW)
270 (rotated 270 CCW)
