GitHub for Windows overview

Instant access to all your projects.

You'll find all projects that you're working on listed in the sidebar. If you want to create a new repository, or clone one from GitHub or GitHub Enterprise, it just takes a second through the repository popover.

With GitHub for Windows 2.0, you can get up and running even faster by initializing your project with a Git ignore of your choice.

Sidebar with repositories

Staying in sync has never been this easy.

The sync button turns the cumbersome workflow of pulling and pushing into a single operation. It notifies you when there are changes to pull down, and lets you easily share local changes.

Branches are essential to the GitHub Flow, and they're always available in the top left corner of the repository view. We’ve made it easy to try out remote branches, create new local branches, and publish branches to share your work with others.

Just click the current branch dropdown to switch branch, or create a new one.
