This page contains download links for the latest released version of PuTTY. Currently this is 0.81, released on 2024-04-15.

When new releases come out, this page will update to contain the latest, so this is a good page to bookmark or link to. Alternatively, here is a permanent link to the 0.81 release.

Release versions of PuTTY are versions we think are reasonably likely to work well. However, they are often not the most up-to-date version of the code available. If you have a problem with this release, then it might be worth trying out the development snapshots, to see if the problem has already been fixed in those versions.

Package files

You probably want one of these. They include versions of all the PuTTY utilities (except the new and slightly experimental Windows pterm).

(Not sure whether you want the 32-bit or the 64-bit version? Read the FAQ entry.)

We also publish the latest PuTTY installers for all Windows architectures as a free-of-charge download at the Microsoft Store; they usually take a few days to appear there after we release them.
