Github Desktop is a great tool that can be used to circumvent the CLI commands. However, as with all things some people prefer CLI, and some people prefer a UI. It's almost entirely up to the preference of the user.

I will say there is a benefit to understanding how to do this through CLI as you may not have access to Github Desktop at some point, or you may switch to a new git provider.
