    Hi All,

    I needed to clone one of my password protected repository from git into my windows machine. I googled it and found lots of help but I would like to wrap up things in very basic level.

    1: You must have git account and repository which need to clone, should be shared with you. 2: Now download gitbash and install it on your system. After installation you will find gitbash command line short cut in your desktop (Selected during installation).

    3: Now click on gitbash icon and you will find a gitbash command line window. Now use following command to create your public key:

    ssh-keygen -t rsa -C ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "your_git_email"

    this will create a public key in your .ssh folder. You can view it from: C:\Users\user_name.ssh for window 7 (accordingly for other os)

    4: Copy content from file and then login into your git account. 5: Click on setting icon (top right header) and you will be redirected to a setting page with lots of option. 6: Click on SSH key and then click on "Add SSH Key" button. A form will appear, now paste the content from step 4 and click on "Add Key". 7: now right click on any folder where you want download that repository. You will find git bash option in popup screen. Click on that. 8: A new gitbash window will appear. Just hit following command:

    git clone git@repository_url

    repository will be downloaded into you folder.

    9: Now you can commit code using:

    git commit -am "Status message"
    git push

    10: Pull code from git:

    git pull

    Hope this will help someone.
