How do I tell if Putty already knows about and has cached credentials for specific ssh servers?
Another way to ask this question is what is the Windows/Putty equivalent of a unix/ssh known_hosts file?

So in windows known_hosts for PuTTY is SshHostKeys.
that is stored at the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys location. To reach that location, the
Registry Editor supposed to be used.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeyslocation - location
SshHostKeysfile using this command
REG QUERY HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeysin PowerShell
And then the cache will be cleared. Will be everything new again for that particular entry
