One of the most popular posts on my website is about adding the capability to handle ssh:// protocol to PuTTY. 8 years passed since then, PuTTY has progressed. It was time to update the newest PuTTY with my changes from 8 years ago. Imagine my surprise though when I found an excellent mod for PuTTY called PuTTYTray, which already incorporated my changes in September, 2015, amongst many other fantastic features!

One thing PuTTYTray doesn’t do is register it for various protocols like “ssh://” and “putty://.” I assume the method provided in my original post still works, but I haven’t checked it yet. Anyway, it would be so much nicer if PuTTYTray did all the necessary registry manipulations automatically as configured. Watch this space.
