Answer

You need to download and install git from http://git-scm.com/downloads

Then you need to track the git.exe on AndroidStudio:

  • Go to Settings > Project Settings > Version Control > VCSs > Git > Path to Git executable

  • Select (or type) executable path, eg: D:\Program Files (x86)\Git\cmd\git.exe

If you installed GitHub Desktop for Windows

In case you have GitHub Desktop for Windows, git.exe will be found at C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\GitHub\PortableGit_c7e0cbde92ba565zz218z5214zzz0e854zzza28\cmd.
