Question probably asked billions of times, multiple articles online, but surprisingly answer for that is not easy. GitHub is very unintuitive, but it makes sharing code with multiple people definitely easier than sending via OneDrive etc.

I have downloaded GitHub extension and successfully cloned repository, which is some sort of connecting to it. But now, I'm unable to add any project. I wanted to add WPF .NET Application, but VS Community won't allow me.

I can only add single files, nothing else.

I have made certain progress. It appears that GitHub repository is limited, and it cannot contain solution, but only a project. I have successfully downloaded a repository, but there is a problem with upload.

I'm clicking on push, ends without issues, but there are no changes on GitHub's end. Any suggestions why it refuses to synchronize so much?

What I have tried:

What you want to do is possible. I am currently doing it, solution and all.

The first steps for me after installing the command line git tools is outlined here[^].

This assumes a new github repository and an already in progress vs solution.

These steps should get your current project on github. After that I found that GithubDesktop was easier to use and to understand than trying to use VS 2019 Community.
