with the default visual studio integration I found it to be amazing, a whole new world of ease for me. You could give that a try, no need to ever leave the VS gui and it's easy and robust.
I come from a background of using git with console, git and svn with clients (tortoise for example) and I really never want to go back to those.
Anyways, not the point. I probably wouldn't do that either for an abandoned project which isn't that complex
