Git Question

Git bash is not showing for another useraccount on my windows

I am using two accounts in my windows computer and both the accounts having same administrator privileges.

I have installed Git tool in my computer when I logged into first account.

But after I switched to second account I can not able to see the Git options on right clicking in the git local branch folder.

How this behavior I am looking?

Should I install git for every individual User account?

Answer

How this behavior I am looking?

The config are probably global, which means they are stored in %USERPROFILE%\.gitconfig, with %USERPROFILE% being different for each user

Should I install git for every individual User account?

You don't, as long as your %PATH% include <git>/bin

I personally don't use the setup, only a self-extracting archive: PortableGit-2.10.1-64-bit.7z.exe (as I did here).
But that would not add the "Git bash here" contextual menu entry in the Windows Explorer though: for that, you need to install Git "for all users" with Git-2.10.1-64-bit.exe (not just "for current user")
