How to always use public key in xshell "ssh user authentication"

 
Hello,

I imported sessions and converted my public key from putty and installed them in xshell.

Now, every time I want to connect to one of my servers, I'm presented with the attached screen.

Is it possible to set xshell to always try the public key and only if it fails, to propose this screen?

Thanks,

David

This is happening because you did not save the password of the private key. Make sure to check the "Remember password" box in the SSH user authentication dialog to save the password of your key.
