IT’S A GOOD IDEA TO FOLLOW THIS GUIDE BEFORE INSTALLING GITKRAKEN OR TORTOISEGIT!!!
- What is Git?
- What are ‘branches’?
- Getting Started
So, you’ve downloaded Git from https://git-scm.com/download/win. Go ahead and install it. I recommend keeping it on your C drive. This is a straightforward process, all the defaults are fine. Just spam the ‘Next’ button and get it installed.
To open Git bash, right-click anywhere on your desktop and you will see the option to do so:
You will notice that it opens with a file path that points to the exact directory you were in when you chose to open it.
Opening Git Bash any other way will open it at your computer’s root on C:\ and you will have to use your magical typing skills to browse to the folder you’re looking for.
Now with that up-and-running, it’s time to move on to our day-to-day work with git tasks simplified
