Using Git with a GUI

Unfortunately, one of the major limitations of using Git is that tools such as Visual Studio lack a large number of features working with this source control system.

In addition, if you are working with a Git provider other than Team Foundation Server or Visual Studio Online, then you are even more limited in your capabilities while working with Git!

Fortunately, however, there are tools such as Atlassian SourceTree to help fill those gaps!

Once you download Atlassian SourceTree, the first thing you will need to do is set up a connection to your remote repository by clicking on the Repository menu and selecting "Add Remote"

Once you have added all of the information for your remote repository, you will be prompted for credentials to your remote repository.

You will also want to configure your Name and E-mail address user information for commits to the repository in the SourceTree Tools-->Options menu:

Once the repository connection has been established, you will then be able to use all of the standard operations to commit your code to your Git repository!
