  Subject: [git-users] no .git folder when creating new repository

     I down loaded the Git Windows version 1.9.4 and gave my name and email
  at bash and  come back to Git GUI to create new repository.I cant see any
  .git folder in the newly created folder on my desktop.

  just wondering why its happening ..I tried couple of time uninstalling and
  stalling git back but its the same .
  please help in this regard.
Have you set your system to show 'hidden files and folders'?

Any file or folder (in windows) that begins with a dot is by default a hidden 
file/folder. *nix has a similar protocol. In Windows Explorer you can set a 
preference to show them by default (see Google;-)

Also the .git sub-directory is only created when you create a new repository 
(clone/init), so you won't see anything without creating that first repo! (some 
of these indications depend on which tool you are using..)
