I mistakenly added files to git using the command:

git add myfile.txt

I have not yet run git commit. Is there a way to undo this, so these files won't be included in the commit?

Since you have not committed yet, undoing a file that is already been added is quite easy task in git.

Now, say I want to reset my file 'myfile.txt' which is already been added, I will use this command:

git reset HEAD myfile.txt

For better understanding about these commands go through the following crash course on git that will help you to understand git well
