SourceTree: How to get a list of Files Changed (across all commits) for a branch

I use Github, and we have multiple feature branches in play at any one time and there can be multiple commits made to any of those Github feature branches.

Having cloned a remote feature branch to my local repository (i.e. I can see the branch listed as the current branch under "Branches" on the left nav in SourceTree), and even before I've made any changes to it myself, I want to be able to see a list of all the files that have already been changed in that branch across all the commits that have been made to it as part of implementing the feature - i.e. I want to see the exact same list of files as I would see if I used Github website itself and navigated to the Files Changed tab on the Github pull request.

I've tried and failed to find the answer for this by scouring the knowledge base and existing community questions... I'm sure there must be a simple way to do it.

Just CTRL+Click the tip of each branch in the Log and it should show you all the changes between those 2 commits.

Thanks Mike, but this does not give me what I'm after - it does indeed show all changes  but, in addition to changes that were made specifically for the feature, it also includes changes that stemmed from merges from our trunk.
