How2SetUp access a Raspberry Pi Computer from a PC using putty

One of a set of simple easy to use guides for beginners to set up a Raspberry Pi computer.

Now to connect to the Raspberry Pi from a windows PC you will need to install putty which is a secure ssh client for windows.

Once installed run putty.exe and fill in the Hostname with the IP of your Raspberry Pi so in my case port must be 22 and fill in Saved Sessions with RaspberryPi then click save - the RaspberryPi will appear in the lower list as shown below.
