The workflow for setting up an SSH key is not totally clear for a newbie. I followed https://cloud.digitalocean.com/ssh_keys and created my key pair, but adding the public key to Digital Ocean is a little confusing. I am not able to copy the contents of the public key from the online console (copy/paste not available), and I am not sure what adding the key does. Can anyone explain this step-by-step without a lot of code. I looked at this and it also confused me: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-ssh-keys--2
Note that I am trying to add SSH to an existing droplet. I have already created the key pair.
