The files status are shown as new files. The .gitignore file is also created automatically.

Now that your project is controlled by Git, you will see the Git file status displayed in the solution explorer.

I had to restart VS 2013 to see Git in the IDE. Right clicking in the Project Properties I do not get a New or Add or any sort of Repository choice. I get Compare with last commit, Undo File Changes, Refresh, History, Pending Changes, Open .gitignore, Git Bash.

It showed in my IDE once I had removed other Source Control programs. When you right click on the project in Solution Explorer, it actually appears as "Create GIT Repository" not "GIT - New Repository"
