Switch branch and ignore any changes without committing

Following is the way to do this:

git stash save
git checkout branch
// do something
git checkout oldbranch
git stash pop

Indeed what it says (to be complete):
git stash save OR git stash (when in working branchY)
then git checkout branchX do something on branchX such as git add/commit -m etc.
git checkout branchY again and
git stash pop to get back the stash
