Github Desktop Resolve Conflicts

When you try to merge or rebase branches, conflicts may occur if the same lines of code have been modified in different branches. In GitHub Desktop, you can resolve conflicts by using the built-in merge tool. Here are the steps to resolve conflicts using GitHub Desktop:

  1. Open GitHub Desktop and navigate to the repository that contains the conflicting branches.
  2. Click on the “Current Branch” dropdown and select the branch you want to merge or rebase.
  3. Click on the “Fetch” button in the top-right corner of the window to retrieve the latest changes from the remote repository.
  4. Click on the “Merge” or “Rebase” button in the top-right corner of the window.
  5. GitHub Desktop will display a list of conflicts that need to be resolved.
  6. Click on a file with conflicts to open it in the merge tool. The merge tool will show the changes from each branch in separate sections and will allow you to choose which changes to keep.
  7. After resolving conflicts for all files, you will be prompted to commit the changes by entering a commit message and clicking on the “Commit” button.
  8. Click on the “Push” button to push the merged or rebased branch to the remote repository.

Note: It is a good practice to always review the changes before committing.
