I use putty and I am quite happy with it, except for the saved sessions feature. Since I have a lot of saved sessions, this tiny little window is so hard to use. Also, since it is limited in width, I have to use very short names, which makes it again more cluttered.

So basically I am searching for putty with this part being bigger and better. Optionally it could also allow for a folder structure.

Checkout KiTTY. It is a fork of PuTTY, and while not the most advanced/complicated/rich, it has noticeable improvements in the line of what you're looking for.


If you need to manage a large number of sessions, with KiTTY you can organize them into folders. One folder for each type of application, one folder per machine, one folder per environment ... or any other organisation. In the main configuration box you will find a new dropdown box. By selecting a specific folder you can reduce the number of sessions displayed in the selection list above.
