Git global settings are saved in “$($env:USERPROFILE).gitconfig” while local settings are saved in the root folder of the respective project.

The global settings can be set from “$($env:USERPROFILE).gitconfig” to another path by setting the environment variable HOME to the desired path (Example: $env:home = ‘D:\github’).

List global settings

these settings can only be changed with admin rights.
