You can view pull requests that you or your collaborators have proposed in GitHub Desktop. Pull requests let you propose changes to projects, provide feedback and reviews, and merge changes into projects. For more information, see "About pull requests."
When you view a pull request in GitHub Desktop, you can see a history of commits that contributors made. You can also see which files the commits modified, added, or deleted. From GitHub Desktop, you can open repositories in your preferred text editor to view any changes or make additional changes. After reviewing changes in a pull request, you can give feedback on GitHub. For more information, see "About pull request reviews."
If checks have been enabled in your repository, GitHub Desktop will show the status of the checks on the pull request and allow you to re-run checks. For more information, see "Viewing and re-running checks in GitHub Desktop."
