If you ignored the files just for this repository, you do it via Settings > Advanced > Edit (next to the Repository-specific Ignore List), or if you ignored the files globally you do it in Preferences (mac) or Tools > Options (Windows), then go to the Git or Mercurial tabs and click the Edit File button next to the Global Ignore List field.
