solved - How do I log into Linode using SSH on windows?

Hello, on my primary PC I can log into Linode from powershell using SSH. On my second computer I followed the guide found here: for adding an SSH key for my second computer. I am able to login using SSH on this second computer using Putty.

However, I am not able to login to Linode using SSH on the this second computer using powershell. I would like to be able to do this. My guess is that I need to add the private key to a file in c:\Users\myname.ssh\ but really not sure what files to add.

Sorry, it turns out this is working and I'm able to login using SSH and powershell.
