Permission denied when pushing to GitHub remote repository

When I tried to push code to GitHub recently, I got the following error despite running PuTTY and loading the SSH key that was associated with my GitHub account:

Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

It turned out that one of my settings in Git Extensions had reverted. I went into Settings, Settings, Ssh and selected the option against PuTTY. I was then able to push successfully.
