Location for GPG Keyrings on Windows Systems

The Windows version of Gnu Privacy Guard (GPG) stores keyrings for users under the directory C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\gnupg on a Windows XP system, where username is the username for the account under which the user logs into the system.

You can create new empty keyrings with gpg --list-keys.

C:\Program Files\GNU\GnuPG>gpg --list-keys
gpg: keyring `C:/Documents and Settings/JDoe/Application Data/gnupg\pubring.gpg
' created
gpg: C:/Documents and Settings/JDoe/Application Data/gnupg\trustdb.gpg: trustdb

Note: gpg uses the forward slash, "/", which is used on Unix, Linux, and other operating systems to separate directories, in its output, though Windows actually uses a backward slash, "\".

If you need to transfer keyrings from a Linux or Unix system to a Windows system, the keyrings are likely to be stored in ~/.gnupg on that system, i.e. in a .gnupg beneath a user's home directory. Transfer the .gpg files, i.e. pubring.gpg, secring.gpg, trustdb.gpg

To import someone's public key into the public keyring, you can use the instructions at Importing a Public Key with GPG.
