I ran a global configuration command in git to exclude certain files using a .gitignore_global file:

git config --global core.excludesfile ~/.gitignore_global

Is there a way to undo the creation of this setting globally?

You can remove an entry in a global configuration using:

git config --global --edit

There you can edit your changes in the file.

If you want to remove the file completely you could do this:

git config --global --unset core.excludesfile

This command will remove the core.excludesfile.
