Opening a branch in gitpod

Hi campers,

I am still learning how to use gitpod. I have a branch open on gitpod and I want to switch from the open branch to another branch. Most times gitpod opens a new setup for the new branch if I navigate to it from GitHub. Is there a way I can switch from one branch to another from within gitpod without taking me to a completely new setup?

git checkout <branchname> in the terminal

if you do not have a terminal
open you can open one from one of the menus in the upper part

all git commands can be used inside gitpod
