So I have created a second test/practice github account but how do I setup different ssh keys for multiple accounts on the same PC?


I've read a bit it seems to be ssh config file - which would make sense - but how do I change the default file? I currently have different one setup with default file on both windows/linux for main account. I setup a new one for my practice account on my laptop only to realise I had then overwritten the previous one so can no longer access my main github repos.


Has anyone successfully set this up or could point me in the right direction?

Why would you need multiple keys? Your machine only needs one?
