I would like to make sure I know where I am fetching, pulling, and pushing to. How to view remote URLs in magit?

From the magit manual "7.1.1 The Remote Popup" on https://magit.vc/manual/magit/The-Remote-Popup.html

M C     (magit-remote-config-popup)
        This command shows remote related variables in a separate popup.

The magit 'M' menu does not list 'C'. Apparently the magit manual is not up to date.

A similar question was posted on Magit equivalent for "git remote -v" (list remotes)

  • Doesn't the answer for the question you link to show a way to see the URL? "The magit 'M' menu does not list 'C'." What version of Magit are you using? The "C" seems to be there in the latest Magit: github.com/magit/magit/blob/…
