How do I configure Putty to use a saved session?

You can create a shortcut to a saved Putty session by right-clicking on the Putty desktop icon or the folder where your saved Putty.

1) Right click the Putty icon and select Copy
2) Right click on an empty space on your Desktop(or another location) and select Paste Shortcut
3) You can rename the shortcut by right clicking the new shortcut icon and selecting Rename.
4) Right click the newly created icon and select Properties
5) At the end of the Target field add a space and the @saved session where saved session is replaced by saved session name you created in configuring Putty

For example if you have a saved session named pegasus the target field  might appear as

"c:programs filelocation of putty.exe" @pegasus
