Clone a Project in Visual Studio 2019

See the original posting on DZone Python


To start with, first, we need to have Visual Studio 2019 installed and a valid server URL. Cloning is the process of downloading or copying a repository to the destination location from the server/source. Cloning projects with Visual Studio 2019 in the Solution Explorer is very easy. Before starting the cloning process, we must have an existing repository which points out our repository on the server. Every server has its own unique repository URL.


  • Visual Studio 2019 (Download from here).
  • Any server account like TFS, GIT, BitBucket, etc.

Step 1: Open Visual Studio 2019

Go to the Start menu on your Windows desktop and type Visual studio 2019; open it.
