Revert Changes in the Commit with GitHub Desktop

usecase

The concern is documenting the GUI approach to a simple revert of a commit. I could not come up with an elegant git CLI solution, the easiest is to use the GUI of GitHub Desktop

1. steps

  • Find a commit you want to revert
  • Note: warning, this has to be a simple reversion (causing no breaking changes along the way) → know what you’re doing here
  • Right-click the commit → Revert changes in commit
  • A new commit is created automatically
  • Push → Done
