The other day I was using PuTTY and I was thinking: “Hey, why isn’t it possible to set the transparency on this thing?” That made me google around a bit and I found this gem PuTTY Tray.
PuTTY Tray is a fork of PuTTY with all sorts of neat features missing from the original version. Like transparency.
It also has features such as (taken directly from PuTTY Tray website:
- Minimizing to the system tray (on CTRL + minimize, always or directly on startup)
- Icons are customisable
- Blinks tray icon when a bell signal is received
- Configurable window transparency
- URL hyperlinking
- Portability: optionally stores session configuration in files (for example: on a USB drive) like portaPuTTY
- Easy access to the ‘always on top’ setting (in the system menu)
- Reconnects on connection failure, including when waking up from stand-by
- Android adb support
PuTTY Tray can be downloaded from https://puttytray.goeswhere.com/
