How to set author of a commit?

Sep 24, 2013 at 12:05 PM
I cannot seem to find the place to set my name and email address to be used when I am committing.
I have set the configuration of my git repository, so that when I commit from the command line, the commit author is "My Name my-email@example.com". However, when I commit from inside Visual Studio, the commit author is set to "unknown my-username@my-pcname.my-domain".
How can I set the commit author to be used by GitSCP?

Kind regards,
Cpl. JBT
