Key Management Window

The Key Management window (see Figure 8) is where all of KGPG’s functions can be invoked, including configuration. I recommend using the defaults until you’re confident you understand how things work. The only exception is Configure – KGpg > User Interface > Global Settings. Make sure the checkbox next to "Start KGpg automatically at login" is enabled so you can use the right-click menu. If you install a Desktop icon for KGpg, it’ll simply put the application into the system tray before you can use it.

Figure 8 Key Management screen

If you find your Key Management screen preloaded with enough keys so you can’t find your secret key, go to View > View Only Secret Keys. Of course, you’ll have to leave that mode to encrypt to anyone else’s key.

At the quick start level, all you need to know about key management is how to export your own key and import other people’s keys.
