How to Modify the Most Recent Unpushed Git Commit Message?

If the commit you want to amend only exists in your local repository and has not yet been pushed, then on the command line navigate to the repository that contains the commit, and use the git commit --amend command like so:

git commit --amend -m "New commit message"

You can also edit the commit message in your text editor if you use the command without the -m flag. For example:

git commit --amend

This would modify the commit message for the most recent unpushed commit.

Please be aware that this would also commit any staged changes.
