Revert a single file to earlier commit using Git Extensions for Visual Studio

Issue

I’ve found instructions on how to revert a single file in a Git repository to an earlier version. But I am curious if anyone knows of a way to do this using Git Extensions for Visual Studio. This tool works great so far and I really like it, but I can’t figure out how to do this one thing.

Solution

The easiest way to do this in Git Extensions is to open the file history (e.g., from the context menu in Visual Studio) for the file you want to revert. Then find the revision you need and choose “Save As” in the context menu.

To revert changes made to a file in the working directory, just choose “revert changes” from the context menu in Visual Studio.
