I am new to GitHub. I have some local changes (on my hard drive) that I want to check in on a separate branch, not the master branch.
How to do that?

It's pretty simple if you've got GIT setup already. Just open Team Explorer, Branches, New Branch, and give it a name.
You can do the same from the lower right hand corner of Visual Studio. You should see your current branch, probably main. Just click it and select "New Branch".

If you are pointing to the Github extension , you can refer to below article for how to install and use GitHub Extension in vs2017:
You can check the branches button/feature and create a branch to work freely without disrupting the "live" version. When you've made the changes you want to make, you can merge your branch back into the master branch to publish your changes.
