Those tools which are supposed to access an existing Git repository (no matter -- if you have created it yourself or `git clone` did this for you) start with the current directory, in which they were run, and try to locate a special directory containing the repository's data (it's named ".git", and is typically hidden). If they fail to locate this directory, they go one step above and look there, if they fail again, they repeat this step until they hit the root of the file system. This way, the tools make it possible to run them in any subdirectory of the project maintained in Git. So... Open a command-line prompt, change current directory to the directory resulting from running `git clone` you did and run git status there. If it prints out a summary message about your repo, all is well. Well, OK. Please take no offence, but I must say your question give away your near-zero knowledge of Git, and hence whatever I wrote above might make almost no sense to you. If yes, please please please start with a book on Git . On the other hand, if you're familiar with Git, just the wording of the question did not make me get it, and you really meant some GUI app to work with a Git repo, then there are plenty of them -- just google. For Windows, I'd recommend "Git Extensions" . But I should warn you that while working with Git is not hard, the concepts it's based on are rather complex for uninitiated, so if you hope a GUI app will make working with Git a walk in the park, I assure you it won't -- sooner or later you will be bitten by lacking basic knowledge. So, again, please start with a book. 1. http://git-scm.com/documentation/ 2. https://code.google.com/p/gitextensions/ -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
