Okay looks like there were two application application keys created …
1 Github-github.com , seems to be one that was created when I first installed and signed into Github Desktop.
2 Github-https://api.github.com , was created and deleted when signing in and signing out
First I signed out, Github-github.com did not get deleted , and Github-https://api.github.com" was deleted
Second I tested it with only the second removed and was still able to push , fetch , pull etc.
Then I removed the first Github-github.com; and I was not able to push , fetch , pull etc.
I signed back in and it only created the Github-https://api.github.com named key.
I would list details about my computer setup as help, but it is pretty basic and I cant think of any external application that would cause this. The GitHub Desktop dmg was installed and downloaded from the website. I have minimal amount of extra applications installed ( brew, microsoft office, mcafee endpoint security for mac, sublime text ) , I’ve never messed with the .ssh/known_host ssh file or any other ssh config files.
