Start putty from commandline / windows - run

Similar to tip above, but what I always do is put a BAT file that allows me to press win-r and enter "ssh HOSTNAME" and press enter to start putty quickly.

I name the file "ssh.bat" and it contains just one line, really:

start "" "%programfiles%\PuTTY\putty.exe" -ssh -P 22 %1

I really like it this way, hope it helps someone who would like to start putty quickly from the commandline/shell or standard windows run dialogue!
