Am i right if git checkout moved my files to a previous commit?
OK, OK. Tell me if i'm crazy if i did 2 "commits" and i confirmed it in my filesystem that the latest changes i did was in the "project folder" aka master would i then change the docs in the "project folder" to the previous commit saying;
git log git checkout 'some digit-number'
tried using a normal text doc "just to check" and seemed to work but now i ask where di my original master go in that directory?!

I am not sure if I understand your question 100%, but I will give it a go.
From what I understand you're confused about where your master went. When you do a checkout you go back to a previous version of your Git repository and your files will reflect that changeset you choose to go back to.
To go back to your master changeset, just use the following command "git checkout master".
I hope this helps.
