Using Git

You can access Git using third-party tools or the command line.

Git is a distributed version control system (DVCS) which is popular and open-source. The Git branching model encourages the use of multiple local branches that are independent of each other but can be merged smoothly and rapidly. Git supports most major operating systems, including Linux®, Windows®, and macOS™. A number of tools exist for interacting with Git, for example, TortoiseGit and SourceTree.

From the file in Project Manager, File Browser, or the currently edited document, right-click and select Locate in System File Browser. Then use the right-click menu of File Explorer to access the tool's commands.
