Troubleshooting Guide: Windows 11 Taskbar Not Showing - How to Fix It

  If your Windows 11 taskbar is not showing, you can try several troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue. Here are some potential solutions you can try:

How to get the name of the current branch in Git?

  To get the name of the current branch in Git, you can use the following command: git branch --show-current This command will print the name of the current branch to the terminal. If you're not on any branch (e.g. you're in a detached HEAD state), it will print (HEAD detached at <commit>) . If you're using an older version of Git that doesn't support the --show-current option, you can use the following command instead: git symbolic- ref -- short HEAD This command will print the name of the current branch to the terminal as well. However, if you're not on any branch, it will print an error message instead. In that case, you can use the following command to get the commit hash instead: git rev-parse -- short HEAD This command will print the short hash of the current commit to the terminal.

How to clone a Git repository to your local machine?

  To clone a Git repository to your local machine, you can follow these steps: Open a command prompt or terminal on your local machine. Navigate to the directory where you want to clone the repository. For example, if you want to clone the repository into a folder called "my-project", you can use the command cd my-project . Use the git clone command to clone the repository. The command should look like this: bash git clone <repository-url> Replace <repository-url> with the URL of the Git repository you want to clone. For example: bash git clone https://github.com/username/repository-name.git Press enter to run the command. Git will download the repository and create a local copy in the directory you specified. Once the clone is complete, you can use the cd command to navigate into the cloned repository and start working with it. Note: You will need to have Git installed on your local machine in order to clone a Git repository. If you don't have Git instal

How to delete a GIT local branch?

  To delete a local branch in Git, you can use the git branch command with the -d or -D flag, followed by the name of the branch you want to delete. The -d flag will only delete the branch if it has been fully merged into the current branch, while the -D flag will force the deletion of the branch, regardless of its merge status. Here are the steps: First, make sure that you are on a different branch than the one you want to delete. You cannot delete a branch that you are currently on. To delete a local branch that has been fully merged, use the following command: git branch -d branch_name where branch_name is the name of the branch you want to delete. If the branch you want to delete has not been fully merged, Git will show an error message. If you are sure that you want to delete the branch anyway, use the following command instead: git branch -D branch_name This will force the deletion of the branch, even if it has unmerged changes. Once you have deleted the branch, you can ver

How to undo the most recent local commit in Git?

  To undo the most recent local commits in Git, you can use the git reset command. There are a few different ways to use git reset to achieve this: Option 1: Undo the commit but keep changes staged If you want to undo the most recent commit but keep the changes staged (i.e., ready to be committed again), you can use the following command: git reset --soft HEAD~ 1 This will reset the branch to the commit before the most recent one, but keep the changes from that commit staged. Option 2: Undo the commit and unstage changes If you want to undo the most recent commit and unstage the changes (i.e., move the changes back to the working directory), you can use the following command: git reset HEAD~ 1 This will reset the branch to the commit before the most recent one and unstage the changes, leaving them in the working directory. Option 3: Completely remove the commit If you want to completely remove the most recent commit (i.e., undo the commit and discard the changes), you can use the
