GitHub on Windows: Switching git remote from HTTP to the git protocol to avoid password request on push

If you are using Github under Windows, without the Github client, this tip can help you avoid password requests on pull and push.

This occurs with both TortoiseGit and Git bash. When you do a git pull , no password is requested if it is a public repository. If it is a private one, or when you will want to push your local changes, a password dialog keeps appearing, even if you have setup your private key properly.
