PuTTY Tray

PuTTY Tray is an improved version of PuTTY. It features some cosmetic changes, and a number of addons to make it more useful and much more fun to use.

Originally compiled by Barry Haanstra, now maintained by Chris West (Faux).

  • Minimizing to the system tray (on CTRL + minimize, always or directly on startup)
  • Icons are customisable
  • Blinks tray icon when a bell signal is received
  • Configurable window transparency
  • URL hyperlinking
  • Portability: optionally stores session configuration in files (for example: on a USB drive) like portaPuTTY
  • Easy access to the ‘always on top’ setting (in the system menu)
  • Reconnects on connection failure, including when waking up from stand-by
  • Android adb support
    The current version is 0.62-t013.
