How can we improve Git Beginner's Guide?

Please update the upset instructions

Please update your installation instructions, especially about the part about Git Config. The new version of TortiseGit includes the hierarchical git configuration. It is very confusing what 'Local/Global/System' means and which to choose. It will be helpful if you can explain them in simpler terms in your tutorial.

    Hi, thank you so much for your feedback.

    Please select ‘Global’ for ‘Config source’.
    Ref: https://cacoo.com/diagrams/V40yIgxdyyShctcq

    The difference of each level:
    Local – the current repository settings stored locally in .git/config
    Project – settings for the current repository stored within the repository in /.tgitconfig
    Global – settings for the current user
    System – settings for all users of the system

    Kindly have a look at the below Tortoisegit document page:
    https://tortoisegit.org/docs/tortoisegit/tgit-dug-settings.html

    Thank you.
