PuTTY is a simple SSH client. There is a fork of the original PuTTY named PuTTY Tray which contains a lot of extra useful features but is no longer maintained.

I've since created a patched version of PuTTY with the features I use from PuTTY Tray and is available on my GitLab repository https://git.steamr.com/others/putty.

PuTTY with Features[edit]

Modified PuTTY with extra features

My copy of upstream PuTTY with additional features. Get the source code or the latest pre-compiled binaries.


  • Based on latest PuTTY source (0.71)
  • File based sessions, in addition to existing registry based sessions
  • On the fly Terminal Resizing (Ctrl + Scroll)
  • Window Transparency (Ctrl + Shift + Scroll)
  • Longer sessions list on startup

Features from PuTTY Tray that have not been implemented as they aren't useful to me:

  • Minimize to tray
  • Hyperlink support (risky, especially when working with malicious scripts or programs)
  • Adb
  • Cygterm
  • Embedded keygen and agent
