How to add a tracked branch?

I have two remote branches named master and dev. When I go to pull from my remote dev branch to my local working copy, I get an alert saying, "Confirm Pull From Non-Tracked Branch - Are you sure you want to pull from a non-tracked branch?" Evidently, I am only tracking the master branch. How do I add dev to be tracked?

If you double click the dev branch in the left panel, it should check out that branch and set it up as tracked.

Right-click the one under the Remotes/Origin node, not the one under Branches (if you have it there).

correction: double-click, not right-click
