    Hi All,

    I am new to GitHub. I have some local changes (on my hard drive) that I want to check in on a separate branch, not the master branch.

    How to do that?

    It's pretty simple if you've got GIT setup already.  Just open Team Explorer, Branches, New Branch, and give it a name.

    You can do the same from the lower right hand corner of Visual Studio.  You should see your current branch, probably main.  Just click it and select "New Branch".
