    Hello,

    I am currently studying for an Amazon Web Services (AWS) certificaiton. I need to use their assigned private keys to log-in to VMs. These private keys are given as .pem files and in a program called PuttyGen I convert them into .ppk files so I can use them on Putty.

    I accidentally opened one of these .ppk files in Word. Now all .ppk files are saved as Word Docs and I cannot get them to save the way they did before. Please anyone let me know how to fix this. Urgent!!!!!
