How to undo changes in a single file, using git

To get rid of the stupid changes you have made in a single file, without effecting important changes in other files use,

git checkout filename

Yes, that is the same command used to switch between branches.

If the branch name is same the filename, do this

git checkout --filename

Note: git checkout --hard will reset all the files. Use that when you are certain about that.
