I am completely new to Visual Studio, .net and Azure DevOps

I have a problem with GIT using the GIT bits (rather than CMD), in Visual Studio

I have a .Net application (Umbraco), that has been built and runs fine. I built a CI pipeline in the Azure Deployment blade for my Azure web App. All works fine.

When I go to Azure DevOps I can see this pipeline and it is called myappname -CI

If I add a test file locally to my Repo, file >new file > test.txt and save it, it appears as a change in the GIT explorer on the right-hand side. I can then click the "push" blue arrow and off it goes, no errors and appears in my DevOps repo. great! but the problem seems to be that the whole lot syncs, I mean the whole application which then starts off the installation set up of Umbraco. Its odd, its almost as if one small change to the code, fires the DevOps pipeline and pushes the whole application to Azure.

Is this something to do with the CI (continuous Integration), bit of DevOps pipelines?

I am totally sure that all I am sending from VS is one file to my Azure DevOps repo. It then fires and overwrites the whole application. Which of course I do not want to happen, just want to make small dev changes to files, add files and send them to DevOps

Just too add to the confusion, if I FTP in to the application I seem to have a whole different set of files, which suggests its is being built as well
