How do I get the Git menu to appear in Visual Studio 2019?

Visual Studio is connected to GitHub in Manage Connections > GitHub

I have GitHub Extensions for Visual Studio installed.

In Preview Features, the following are checked...

  • GitHub Action support in Publish
  • New Git user experience

I am running Visual Studio in Admin mode.

I have restarted the compute and Visual Studio multiple times. I have a local repo opened.

I have been able to connect the project to GitHub and commit code already, but now I am unable to.

I can see the menu in the Extensions > Customize Menu dialog (see attached).

Still, my repo is not connected to GitHub and I don't see the menu item.

What am I doing wrong?

    Hello @Michael McGlynn ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Please try to uncheck New Git user experience option > click OK and then go to Tools > Options > Environment > Preview Features and check it again.

    Feel free to let me know if it works.

    Best Regards,
    Tianyu
