    Is it possible to create something on my windows desktop that will allow me to log into a server via SSH without using a login and password, just double click on the icon and it auto logs me in? I can do this on my linux desktop but not sure on windows.

    I bet with putty + private keys + command line switches you could do it.

    on your remote host in your ~/.ssh directory, you can create a file called authorized_keys, and put your client signature in there... it will then not ask you for a password. Then you just should be able to (in putty) save that host's info and directly connect to it.

    i usually do this so i don't have to log in every single time from the same machine multiple times per day. As long as you are on a secure client system that is password protected, it's really not a security hazard. I don't do it often however, or with mission-critical servers, just in case
