How to open and see content in .PPK files?

Hello All,
I have generated a .ppk & .pub key files using Puttygen and saved them into my local machine (windows 8 OS), But when I am navigating and looking for those files in the windows folders I couldn't able to see them even though I have the option to show hidden files is turned on.

But I am only able to see them when I navigate through pageant but can't able to open and see/edit the content, so how do I see and open them physically in a notepad/wordpad file?

Thank you

Maybe show system files? Type in the name and hit open?

Go to Puttygen and load the files and then try to choose "Export OpenSSH File." Go to notepad and then see if you can open them.

I followed your instructions and saved the file as a .txt file, but when i save it to the "C:\Program Files\Putty\" folder i can't physically see the file when i navigate to that location probably because of some permissions issue or something, but when i save it to the desktop i can see that file.

Thank you.
