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.

Re: Get started tutorial

@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.
