TortoiseGit - The coolest Interface to Git Version Control

TortoiseGit is a Windows Shell Interface to Git based on TortoiseSVN. It's open source and can be built entirely with freely available software.

TortoiseGit supports you with regular tasks, such as committing, showing logs, diffing two versions, creating branches and tags, creating patches and so on (see our Screenshots or documentation).


The latest release and language packs are available on the download page. There you can also find the system requirements and latest release notes.

The TortoiseGit team also provides preview releases on an irregular basis. These versions are used by the TortoiseGit developers and are built from the latest code that represents the cutting edge of the TortoiseGit development.

What to do if things go wrong or a crash happened

Before reporting an issue, please search whether a similar issue already exists and check that your problem isn't fixed in our latest preview release.

An important aspect of reporting issues is to have a reproducible example of the issue; it's also important to mention the exact version of your operating system, the version of Git and the version of TortoiseGit (this information can be found on the TortoiseGit about dialog).

TortoiseGit includes a crash reporter (if not disabled on installation), which automatically uploads crash dumps to, where the TortoiseGit team can review them. If you have a reproducible example, please also file an issue and link the crash report.

We have a special page describing steps for debugging, where the majority of these steps do not require you to build TortoiseGit on your own.

How to build

Building TortoiseGit normally is not necessary; however, it is easy. All necessary requirements and steps are described in the build.txt file. Our short description in the architecture.txt file might also be helpful.
