Cannot get Dreamweaver to see my Git client

I have Dreamweaver 2021 and Github Desktop installed on my MacBook Pro and neither one of them can see the other. I have followed the instructions given in "Adobe Dreamweaver Classroom in a Book (2021 release)", I have looked up tutorials here on Adobe.com and on YouTube, and I have read the article on the help site: https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/git-support.html. No matter what I try, the two applications very simply cannot see one another, making it imossible for me to continue the lessons in the text book past Chapter 1 because the end of the chapter requires you to use Git for all lessons going forward. Does anyone know what I might be able to do about this? I have already looked at some the questions and answers in this forum about the same topic, and I could not find anything that helped me solve the problem.

To clarify terms a bit, Git is a UI client.  Github is file repository.

 

If you are a new Git user, you must first download the Git client below and create a Git user account. Be sure to sign-in to your Git account.

It's recommended that you install the Git client with the default configuration settings. Dreamweaver then automatically picks the path to the executable on your hard drive.

Dreamweaver was able to connect to my Git client when I found the full path to it in the terminal (using the command "which git") and pasted that into the dialog for configuring the connection to Git manually that appears when Dreamweaver can't do it automatically. Thank you very much for your speedy reply and assistance!
