If you are looking to clone a repo & push changes in VS Code go to this URL:
If you are looking to clone a repo & push changes in Git Bash go to this URL:

If you are looking to Fetch or Pull with VS Code go to this URL:
Go to https://github.com
Log in with your account information or create a new account
On the main page click Create repository – if this is not your first repo then just click New
Give your repo a memorable name
I always enter in a description
Public means anyone can see it – private means you choose who can view
Since I prefer VS Code I always put an Add .gitignore for VS
Finally, Create repository
Congratulations you now have a GitHub repository
Pretty easy to hop on GitHub and create a repository. The fun part comes next when you clone a repository locally, make modifications or create net new files, and then go to update the GitHub repo. As always, I hope y’all found this useful.
