How do you turn off version control in android studio?

Questions:

I set up my Github with android studio, everything worked fine, the problem now is though, that I can’t seem to turn off, or get out of version control to use the IDE normally again.

This means that errors aren’t shown, and it is really hard to debug because of this.

So how do I turn off version control (VCS) in Android Studio?

How to&Answers:

To disable VCS in Android Studio on a Mac do the following:

Android Studio > Preferences...

enter image description here

In the Preferences window, select Version Control and under Directory choose VCS dropdown to be <none>

Don’t forget to click “Apply” in the general Preferences buttons at the bottom.

Answer:

In Android Studio 1.2.x

FILE -> SETTINGS -> VERSION CONTROL

Here the root is shown, Press (-) button to delete.

Answer:

The other answers weren’t working for me, so I am adding my solution.

This message was driving me crazy:

I had trouble with the other suggestions, as my settings was not allowing me to save changes for version control none.

So I went into Version Control / Ignored Files and removed all ignored files for that project.

Then when I clicked back on Version Control

Answer:

VCS is a project specific setting which you can modify by going to File -> Settings then checking under the Version Control heading.

Alternatively, you could disable a specific VCS plugin under the Plugins heading.

Note: I have not used GitHub as VCS, but you should still be getting error display (syntax checking) in the IDE. VCS usage should not disable that, since that would make the use of an IDE completely pointless.

Answer:

You can delete vcs.xml file and it will remove the VCS connected with your app. ‘vcs.xml’ file can be found in this location “YourProject\ .idea\vcs.xml
