To merge our commits into the main branch, we must first switch to the main branch.
$ git checkout main Switched to branch 'main'
Before merging, open the

As you’ll see, the change added on
issue1 we made in the previous step isn’t included in the
myfile.txt file on the main branch.
When you use the git merge command, the specified commit will merge with the active branch. Using the following command, we can now merge.
$ git merge issue1 Updating 1257027..b2b23c4 Fast-forward myfile.txt | 1 + 1 files changed, 1 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
The position of the main branch will now move over to that of
issue1, executing a fast-forward merge.
Finally, let’s confirm the content of the
myfile.txt file. Open
myfile.txt, and you will see the new line we committed to the
issue1 branch is now on the main branch.
