Home » Windows » Backing up / Exporting PuTTY Sessions

To export your configured PuTTY sessions from the Windows Registry, open Command Prompt and enter the command:

regedit /ea putty.reg HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY

To import this registry key again on another machine, open Command Prompt and enter the command:

reg import putty.reg

 NB:  Export can be done as a regular user, whereas import requires Administrator privileges.
