Message I have egg on my face. The extended context menu *does* contain delete (keep local). I wasn't seeing it because the file I right clicked was not in a working copy. I'm still new at this, so please disregard my previous post, or better yet, delete it and this post as well.

Paul seems to have lost interest in this topic, but I have the exact same problem. And I do see "Pin to start menu" in the extended context menu. And to answer Simon Large's question, I have version 1.5.6. And like Paul, I'd like to know if this feature can accessed some way other than the extended context menu.

...unless you happen to use the "classic" start menu, that is...

Well one item in the WinXP extended context menu is "Pin to start menu"
- it appears for individual files ie shift right click on a file. So by
seeing if you can get that you can tell whether you have a generic
problem or a TSVN problem.

You did click in the *right hand* pane of Explorer? It doesn't work in
the left (tree view).

Which version are you using? "Delete (keep local)" appeared in 1.5.0
