How to remove files from git commit?

If you have added any unwanted or wrong files to the git commit, no worries. This happens and we do make mistakes. You can remove any file that has been added to the commit.

Use git reset command where you have to provide filename with complete directory path.

git reset HEAD path/to/file

Note: This command will not work if you have already pushed the code to your repository. It means you can not revert the chnages once changes are already pushed. In that case, you have to revert the git commit.
