The git checkout command lets you navigate between the branches created by git branch. Checking out a branch updates the files in the working directory to match the version stored in that branch, and it tells Git to record all new commits on that branch.

#Check out the specified branch, which should have already been created with git branch
git checkout 

#create and checkout new branch
git checkout -b 

The git checkout command serves three distinct functions:

  • checking out files
  • checking out commits
  • checking out branches


#Check out a previous version of a file.
git checkout  

#Update all files in the working directory to match the specified commit. You can use either a commit hash or a tag as the  argument.
git checkout
