Configuring SSH keys for Github using Windows 10

You’ll need to install:

Create an ssh key and set it as your default:

  • Run ssh-keygen
  • Create a key. Name it id_rsa. You’ll get a private key (id_rsa) and a public key (id_rsa.pub). Never disclose your private key. Share your .pub key instead.
  • Upload the id_rsa.pub github.com ssh keys
  • Save the private id_rsa file in your ~\.ssh folder
  • Restart your terminal if it doesn’t work
