How can I do something like git checkout --track origin/newBranch

I use git pull, git checkout --track origin/newBranch a lot, but in sourceTree,  I can not find a quick way to do  this, So how can I do it. 

PS: I don't like to use track remote and select the remote branch to track, 'Cos there are many many branches in the remote and very hard to find the branch to track.

In the "Checkout New Branch" dialog, check the "Local Branch should track remote branch" option.

If that isn't what you're looking for, maybe you could explain what you're trying to do more clearly.
