Opening Repositories

Of course, one of the most important actions in Tower is opening a repository to work with. Not only can you achieve this in a couple of different ways - you might also want to open a repository in other applications like Explorer or Terminal.

Open a Repository in Tower

  • Double-click an item in the sidebar of the Repositories view.
  • Press CTRL + O to show the Open Quickly dialog. Start typing any part of the repository‚Äôs name.

    By the way: if the textfield is empty, you'll see a list of most recently opened repositories.

Reveal a Repository in Explorer

  • In the Repositories view, right-click an item and choose Reveal in Explorer.
  • If the repository is already open in Tower, you can use Open in Explorer from the File menu.


Open a Repository in Terminal

  • In the Repositories view, right-click an item and choose Open in Terminal.
  • If the repository is already open in Tower, you can use Open in Terminal from the File menu.


Alternative "Terminal" application
By default, Tower uses the bundled "MINGW64" when opening a command line session. To use a different application (e.g. "Windows Powershell"), you can configure your application of choice in Tower's preferences on the Integration tab.
