GPG usage?

I have reason to think that I have GPG properly installed as a portable app. However, it does not appear in the Apps list. What am I not understanding?

Note: I want to use it manually.

Plugin

GPG is a plugin (used by Thunderbird Portable, SeaMonkey Portable) and command line tool. It does not come with its own interface. There are packages by third party developers that come with a GUI but that is not the one created by Gnu.

Thanks for clarifying that.

Thanks for clarifying that.

How do I access it via command line in PortableApps?

Also, once installed, I see no way that I can remove it (since it does not show up in the list). ???

I installed the Command

I installed the Command Prompt App. But I have not found how to run GPG from its command line. What is the name of the executable?

Not Supported

Running from the command line is not supported in this plugin version. We do not currently make available a version for use from the command line. If you use it from the command line, it'll save all your stuff locally.

Oh.

Oh. Then I misunderstood your statement:

"GPG is a plugin ... and command line tool."

In that case, how can I remove the GPG plugin?

Delete the Folder

You can delete the folder: PortableApps\CommonFiles\GPG
