I have two connections saved in WinSCP and when I connect to the second connection it works as it should in WinSCP but as soon as I want to open PuTTY with the same login data as I have used in WinSCP (Ctrl+P) it opens PuTTY with the login data from the first connection and fails to login.
I cannot find an option to change this behaviour.
How can I fix it?
Thanks!

Just to check that my understanding is correct:
1) You have two stored session in WinSCP, let's say "A" and "B"
2) You start WinSCP
3) Double click the "B" session to open it
4) Then you press Ctrl+P to start PuTTY
5) PuTTY opens the "A" session
Is this correct?

Yes, but the last step is a little bit strange because PuTTY tries to connect to the IP from session B (which is already active in WinSCP) but with the login data from session A.

Do you have stored session "B" in PuTTY?

No sessions are stored in PuTTY

Thanks, you got my reply Wink

EDIT: I have deleted the "WinSCP temporary session" in PuTTY because I thought WinSCP would add a new one but it doesn't. Now the PuTTY feature doesn't work anymore from WinSCP because PuTTY always asks me for the connection data.
How can I solve that?
Thanks
