Change type


Change Type allows you to change the entry type, for example you could change multiple SSH Shell entries to PUTTY entries in one easy step. For most conversions you will only have to select the destination type. If you select Putty or FTP as your Connection type you will have to choose the sub-type using the Details drop-down menu.
