I decided to use Git for version control a recent project. I couldn't stand resorting to SVN again just because I haven't gone through the process with Git yet. This post will serve to document the process I went through in installing Git on my computer. I will leave some reference links at the bottom as well.
- Download Git for Windows
- See Welcome screen -> click 'Next'
- Agree to the license -> click 'Next'
- Select Destination Location -> use default -> click 'Next'
- Select Components -> Check: Git Bash Here & Git GUI Here -> click 'Next'
- Select Start Menu Folder -> use default
- Adjusting your PATH environment -> use default -> click 'Next'
- Configuring the line ending conversions -> use default -> click 'Next'
- Installing -> files will get extracted
- Completing the Git Setup Wizard (installation is complete)
After you have gone through this process, Git should be installed on your computer. My goal is to get a project I have on my local system onto my GitHub account. I have documented this step on this post: Uploading a Project to Github.

Note: I just found this link and realized I basically did the exact same thing except with less detail than this link. I don't care though.
