TortoiseGit utilizes a user interface integrated with Windows Explorer while permitting integration with a variety of development tools. You're not limited to a specific IDE.  Commands not relevant to the files or folders present on a particular Windows Explorer screen are omitted allowing quick access to the features you actually need.  Commands present are tasks such as displaying logs, creating new branches in the code, showing and editing logs, updating patches, and showing the difference between two versions of code.  It supports simple GUI file movement by click-and-drag within Windows Explorer.

Regularly updated based on user feedback, each version is tested for stability by volunteers before a general update is presented for public use.  An internal spell check system, character map integration, and auto-fill features ensure readability of your logs.  All settings, including language and restrictions, are on a per-project basis, allowing for easy transitions between setups without the need to constantly change the global settings.

Compatible with TortoiseGitMerge to show changes and assist in rectifying conflicts between versions.  Also compatible with TortoiseGitBlame for error identification and per-line log views.  Supports TortoiseGitlDiff for easy observation of alterations with image files.

Support for use of TortoiseGit exists in the form of manuals, FAQs, and a GitLab Issue Tracker.  However, the developers of TortoiseGit do not provide direct support for the product.  TortoiseGit is completely open source and developed by volunteers, donations are accepted if you find it useful, but otherwise, the software is free to use.

This program seems great for developers! It sounds really useful for allowing easy access to the tools you actually need, without having to sift through a bunch of irrelevant commands. It also has Autofill and internal spellcheck to make things even easier!

I believe this is a great product. I’ve been in the engineering industry since 2006. I’ve worked for many employers and I believe that after reviewing the links and reading google reviews, I would use it.

TortoiseGit would be a great tool for users that are more advance with computers. Although it states that it is easy to use, TortoiseGit uses commands, logs, patches, etc that beginners may not understand right away. This tool is free to download and has features like autocorrect for spelling and shows the users all the changes they have made in case they need to go back and adjust.

TortoiseGit is an intuitive and user-friendly application for managing Git repositories. It provides a convenient GUI for performing common tasks like committing, pushing, pulling, and merging. I particularly appreciate its ability to display the graphical representation of a repository's history. It also integrates with the Windows shell, so navigation between the repositories is quick and easy. Finally, the application is well-documented, which is helpful for beginners.

I found TortoiseGit to be a user-friendly interface for Git, but it can be slow and occasionally has compatibility issues with certain versions of Windows.
