Get started tutorial


Anyone have an issue with the Git software in that when I follow the instructor directions in the Introduction to GitHub course I do not get the same response in the Git Bash console. In trying to set up the User Name & User Email I get the following response - " bash: /c/Users/milydon: Is a directory".  This is a different response to what the instructor shows.

I have downloaded the application on 2 different laptops, and both times have same responses.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@michaellydon5 when you clone a repostory in the command line, it is downloaded as a folder inside of your current directory. If you’re in the directory /c/Users/milydon, then you can type cd followed by the name of your repository, and you should then be inside of the Git repository and able to use Git commands.

I’m having the same problem. I’ve tried doing what hectorsector said but it still doesn’t work.
