In this episode, we’re going to use the “git revert” command. Revert is perfect for cases where you want to undo the effects of an old commit - like in this example. Let’s say you wanted to undo “C2”, then revert would create a new commit that contains the opposite changes.
This is important to understand: revert does not delete any commits. Instead, Git automatically creates a new commit with changes that revert the effects of the unwanted commit.
Let’s look at a practical example and assume that we want to undo that “Change headlines” commit here. We can simply right-click the commit and select “Revert” from the menu.
That’s already it - we have now successfully reverted an old commit with a new one.
