Git > "Show History" Hangs

Hello, I am struggling with being able to see the History on an individual file in Rider.

If I right click a file and choose "Show History"

Then the dialog shows "Loading commits..." for infinity and never loads the History

Please let me know what I can try or other screenshots to provide.

Thanks so much.

Hi Anna Morozyuk

It turns out following your steps above, seems to have solved the issue

I think it was the Step:

"Invoke Help | Diagnostic Tools | Profile Indexing. Click Invalidate and Restart (please note that Local History and Indices will be destroyed)."

Once I performed that, all the associated Git functions began to work fine. So for now, I am good. Thank you.


Glad you had your issue resolved! 

If any further questions - please let us know.
