Notes about the PPK file extension:
Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.
The PPK file type is primarily associated with 'PuTTY'. PuTTY is a terminal emulator application which can act as a client for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin, and raw TCP computing protocols. The name PuTTY has no definitive meaning, though tty is the name for a terminal in the Unix tradition, usually held to be short for teletype.
