SSH Keygen file placement

SSH Keygen file placement was created by SamStamport
Why does ssh-keygen place the keys in C:\Users\Sam\Sites\devdesktop\columbiablooms-dev\.ssh. The video ( www.ostraining.com/class/ssh-keys/basics/ ) indicates they should have been placed in C:\users\sam\.ssh. Does this make a difference?

Hi Sam,

What it is doing is specifically putting your SSH in a specific folder so you can work with multiple ssh keys for multiple sites without combining them. It's not idea but it is a local way of doing it.

Thanks,
Daniel
