Hello there, @dragonheart999

I will recommend you to install an ssh-client like PuTTy on your Windows machine in order to access your droplet via ssh. PuTTY is an open-source SSH and Telnet client for Windows. It allows you to securely connect to remote servers from a local Windows computer.

If you don’t have PuTTY installed, visit the PuTTY website and choose the Windows installer from the Package files list. Once PuTTY is installed, start the program.
