Secure Shell Client - Revert to default setting

After some messing around with the Secure Shell Client setting, my Quick Connect's Authentication Method is stuck to Public Key.

No matter what I do with the Setting, I simply could not revert to Profile Setting.

So, what I had done is to manually edit the default setting file as follow (Assuming you are using Windows 7)

1. Navigate to C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Roaming\SSH

4. Save the file and relaunch Secure Shell Client
