I want to start fresh in Git & GitHub

Halo,
I currently have Git and GitHub config. But, I want to start fresh. I want delete GitHub account and start new one with different username. Can do it easily in GitHub, but what about the Git config. How to reset the Git config, create new SSH key and set it up from scratch? Thanx.

You can always remove repositories and reset the settings on your existing GitHub account. If for some reason you know that you want to completely abandon that account, then simply creating a new one and going through the setup steps on your computer as if you had never done it before will work. Just follow the instructions for creating an SSH key and setting your username, password, etc.
