Untrack already tracked file in Git repository

in Code Write a comment

Learn how to untrack a single file that has already been tracked in Git.

Suppose you have added all the files to the Git repository using the following command:

$ git add --all

Now you want to remove a single file from Git repository. You can do that by running the following command:

$ git rm --cached filename.txt

This command will remove the file from the local repository now you need to update the remote one:

$ git commit --all -m "removed filename.txt"

Or if you’re using git aliases you can just run:

$ gcam "removed filename.txt"
