Well, then how do I get my public key so I can post it someplace?

So, I haven’t figured out the graceful way to do this from the Kleopatra gui yet.

1) Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt.

2) type

 
gpg --export -a "user name" > pubkey.txt

  a. Be sure to type the user name you entered when creating the keys instead of ‘user name’.
  b. Put it in quotes if it’s not all one word; if there’s a space it needs quotes.

3) Now you’ve got a text copy of your public key in the file pubkey.txt

4) Find and open this file in Notepad.

5) Copy it (Control A Control C)

6) Go to the public key page on this website (here)

7) Add a comment with your blog username and email address
  a. IMPORTANT. Type <pre> and press enter.
  b. Hit Control V to paste in your public key.
  c. IMPORTANT. Type </pre> and press enter.

8) post the comment.
