Hello, I was attempted to pull from a repository when it authenticated me to log in using my github username and password. After entering what I thought was my github username and password, it failed to authenticate, then I noticed that I was using the wrong username. It would have been convenient and also quick to simply change my username right there, but apparantly it is not so. How do I change my SourceTree github authentication?
My old username that was greyed out wasn't displaying in the 'saved passwords' list so I couldn't remove it or edit it. Therefore, I found the following to work:
Reset the global settings by running:
git config --global user.name "NewUserName"
After that, restart SourceTree to check if it works.
I then managed to remove my old username from the 'saved passwords' list.
