Switching Branches in Git

The 'checkout' command can be used to switch the currently active branch to different branch. However, the 'checkout' command can also be used to restore files. But the most common use of the 'checkout' command is to switch branches.

To switch from one branch to another in Git, use the 'checkout' command followed by the branch name you want to switch to:

git checkout branch_name

Replace 'branch_name' with the branch name you want to switch to.
