GitHub for Windows provides quick access to the knowledgeable tech community right on the desktop. GitHub is a unique community filled with developers, Microsoft engineers, programmers. It's a place for like-minded individuals to connect and work on projects together. The community is also a great place to get a number of different resources, such as tools and information. For many community members, it's a go-to spot for information about installing and maintaining Microsoft programs. With many Microsoft professionals regularly using GitHub to communicate and share, Windows users can get help straight from the source.

This piece of desktop software combines the numerous features of the community into one place. Instead of visiting GitHub on a browser, it can be accessed on one program. The program also provides tools for designers and engineers to work on projects they host on the service. Members can have ultimate control of their project by creating various branches and steps to get work approved. The entire service is run in the cloud, so it's possible for people across the world to work on the same project. The unique program simplifies the workflow and presents everything in an intuitive and beautiful manner.

Users can log into their account just like they would on the website. From there, projects are easy to access. New projects can also be created by simply dragging and dropping the repository into the program.
