Gitk –all from inside Git Extensions

Posted on

So I love using Git Extensions on Windows. However, sometimes when you want an unfiltered view of your repository, nothing comes close to good old gitk --all

It turns out that you can have the best of both worlds.

First, In the Scripts tab in Git Extensions settings, Add a new script. Don’t delete or re-use the Example script. The command field is something along the lines of C:Program Files (x86)Gitcmdgitk.cmd. All you need for arguments are --all. Name it whatever you like. I’ve called it GitGitkAll (because there already is a GitGitk command). Click Ok and restart Git Extensions. I found I needed to do this for the new script to reliably show up in the Hotkeys tab.

I’ll assume you are now back in the Hotkeys tab in Settings. Click Scripts. Assign a hotkey to your new command. I used Ctrl+Shift+K.

When you’re browsing your repository, hit your assigned hotkey.

You now have the best of both worlds.
