This all about easily installing the
OpenSSH client in Windows 10.
Microsoft was nice enough to start shipping the
OpenSSH client in Windows 10. It's easy to install if it's not already. Every Windows 10 machine/VM I have seen already had it installed.
- Right click the Windows start button,
Manage Optional Features
- First check to see if the
OpenSSH Clientis already installed by scrolling through the list. It should be alphabetical. If it's there, you don't need to do anything and can ignore the rest of this list.
Add a feature
- It'll look like it's doing nothing, no popup or prompt, it just collapses it. But it's install it in the background.
- Click the
back arrowin the title bar next to
Settingsand wait for to finish installing.
- Once it's done installing you may need to reboot. You can test it by opening a new PowerShell and typing
sshand press enter. If it works, you're good. Otherwise reboot.
That's all there is to it.
