Using git commit amend

Exactly after hitting enter you realized you forgot to run git add – . to begin to track and stage fdsa.txt This is where amend comes in. But first run add.
to add this file to the commit you just recently made all you got to do is run this command:
This trick amends the new commit to the latest one made. Read more about the git commit command at the official Git site.
