I had created a new project on a computer with vs 2015 update 2, I commit and sync to visual studio TFS free online repository. Then I had pulled down a clone onto another computer, and after a few days of creating new files etc... I did a rebuild, builds fine, then I go to Team Explorer --> Changes
I'm seeing in Changes, that there are 138 ... of which .txt, .dll , .cache, .pdb etc..
Of course I "could" simply not "stage" those , but why would visual studio 2015 (upate 2) even be showing me these files. ( I recall other projects with git / visual studio in which it simply does not show
You are going to have to hammer on it from the command line.
I have not gotten results with the simple delete of .git\
That file gets re-created..
cmd> git status ( i would do this frequently for peace of mind Keep your 1 or more .gitignore file in the project folder(s) git commit -m "all your files" (save your code) git rm -r --cached . (remove any changed files from index (stage) git add . ( add all files which will remove .dll etc.. git commit -m "now your gitignore will work..."
