How to get the current branch name in Git?

I’m from a Subversion background and, when I had a branch, I knew what I was working on with “These working files point to this branch”.

But with Git I’m not sure when I am editing a file in NetBeans or Notepad++, whether it’s tied to the master or another branch.

There’s no problem with git in bash, it tells me what I’m doing.

git branch
should show all the local branches of your repo. The starred branch is your current branch.

git status
or
git branch
This will show the current branch name.
