How to auto login to PuTTY in Windows


In this gudie I will show you how to create a Windows shortcut , which will store PuTTY session information so that you don't have to enter the username and password every time you login.

If you haven't installed PuTTY, you can download it from from putty.org

Create a Windows shortcut

Begin by creating a Windows shortcut

  • window shortcut
  • Click browse and navigate to the PuTTY folder.It’s usually located in C:\Program Files\PuTTY or C:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY

  • Select putty.exe, click OK and Next.Enter a name for you shortcut. e.g. LinuxServer and click Finish.

  • shortcut-properties
  • After the double quotes, paste in the following user@server.com -pw password
    Replace user with username, server.com with your server address and password with your server password.

Click OK and you’re done!

Now when you double-click the shortcut it will bring you straight into your Linux server without having to enter username or password.
