Android Studio And Git Configuration - Day Four


Today I am starting with the configuration of GIT version control system in Android studio because GIT is now a very popular version control system and it is useful for all developers, and GIT is a large platform for sharing your code.

Refer to the article series below:

GIT offers two types of accounts; one is private and other is public. The public account is free of cost and the private account has some charges.

Step 1: I share only the one screen in a part of installation, because when you install the GIT you are just little bit confused; the installation is simple but in the midst of installation you can uncheck the Windows Explorer Integration and then install it. You can download the GIT from this URL.

Step 3: Then after clicking the configure button now click on setting button.


Step 4: Now when you click the setting button this page appears, now you paste the correct GIT installation Path where you install it, then press Test button for connection. My connection is OK.


Step 5: Now in the left side you see the GitHub tag appears, click on this tag and give the username and password and then click on test button. Now you see that the connection between GitHub account and your Android studio is configured.


Step 6: Now open the CMD and type the commands:
