Today I’ll be showing you how to fix the option “Open with GitKraken” on context menu.

It’s really simple, just follow these steps:

Open with Gitkraken error fix

Open Regedit and find this registry enter

  • Press Windows+R, type regedit and press enter
  • Press Cntrl+F to search and type “open with gitkraken” and press enter. Or you could find it manually in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shell\GitKraken\command
  • On the “GitKraken” key, you should find a folder called “command”, open it and edit the Reg there.
  • Replace this:
    "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\gitkraken\update.exe" --processStart=gitkraken.exe --process-start-args="-p %L"
  • With this:
    "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\gitkraken\update.exe" --processStart=gitkraken.exe --process-start-args="-p %V"

See? Just the last letter changed from L to V.

That’s it!
