The main aim of this submission is to investigate the effects of some parameters like wave number, shear velocity, magnetic field and temperature for the growth rate of the magnetized Kelvin-Helmholtz instability (KHI) with incessant profiles through interface of two viscous fluid layers occurred in the solar atmosphere using the model of Hoshoudy et al. (Astrophys. Space Sci. 364:89, 2019). In this examination, the presence of KHI is identified for the various cases of wave number, magnetic field, shear velocity and temperature in the solar atmosphere. The sensible values of these parameters were acquired.
