$ ssh-keygen
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/c/Users/username/.ssh/id_rsa):

Enter same passphrase again:
Your identification has been saved in /c/Users/username/.ssh/id_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in /c/Users/username/.ssh/
The key fingerprint is:
d0:82:24:8e:d7:f1:bb:9b:33:53:96:93:49:da:9b:e3 username@mypc.local

To verify it, you can try typing below command:
