How to undo a git add
May 6, 2020
So many times, I've accidentally added a file to be staged for a commit and then I have to frantically Google how to un add a file.
There are a couple types of undos that I typically run into.
- Resetting back to the original file before you made changes
// 1. Un-add file from being staged to commit git reset <file> // 2. Resets <file> to original before you started making changes git reset <file> git checkout <file>
