SourceTree - hard to understand the GUI, where is the file history?


I installed the SourceTree, but is painful for me, I can't achieve the basic things like search for a file and its history...

Someties the GUI is extremely counter-intuitive.

I have a file, say "Header.cshtml" and I would like to see all the modifications history in that file. 

1) How to find the file (where is the file filter??) I can search for "file changes, comments or authors", but where should I search for filenames??

2) How, once the file found, to display its history (I don't even ask how to search through this history by comments)

Hi Serge,

Have you had a chance to check out our getting started guide?

Hi Brian, thank you do not proposing me as an answer !

You could do an effort and propose me this link, but is still not helpful.

Be assured, if I arrived to register in this forum and ask, then it was easier than finding that information from the GUI or help.
