 nano -c .gitignore ;  find . -not -path './.git/*' | git check-ignore -v --stdin

Check if Files are tracked:

git ls-files **/*

Note: do NOT place this in .git , it can go anywhere, but my assumption is it's only respected downstream of its location, so the root dir makes most sense to me.

w/ File Explorer in Windows you can name a file 


and it will rename it to .gitignore.




If already checked in, remove via:

git rm --cached .vs/ -r
git rm --cached ExcelWebAddIn1/.vs/ -r  

git rm --cached .vs/slnx.sqlite
git commit -m "rm --cached"
git push
