On Windows 10 version 1803 or newer, you already have OpenSSH built-in. On older versions of Windows 10, it can be installed as an optional Windows feature. On older version of Windows, you can just extract the client-side tools from a .zip (latest release), no installation is need.
I see there's an accepted answer already, but if you're using Windows 10, the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a great alternative. You can put aliases in your .bashrc file, or you could reference the command history to reopen a previous connection. You can also install tmux and have several connections open at once.
Use the following command.
Putty -load "Saved Session's Name" Example: Putty -load "Default Settings" Example: C:\putty.exe -load "Default Settings"
