So I have in my Idea some git functionality, eg in the bottom right corner of Idea I can see the branches in a drop-down-control and I can right-click in the source code and choose Git -> Annotate which will decorate the editor with the Git-annotations. But there is no Version Control Tool Window, so I cannot inspect my git history (eg). The version control tool window is normally accessable via View -> Tool Windows -> Version Control, but it is greyed out (disabled).
BTW there IS NO OPTION to "Enable Version Control" in the VCS meny (and why would there, git seems to be already enabled, it is just the Version Control Window thats is missing).
