I'm new to gpg too, just started using it in April.

If I want to export my public key to a file using the Linux
command line tools, I would do this:

 gpg --armor --export CronoCloud at >

Have you tried out GPA (Gnu Privacy Assistant)? For new users
that might be easier to use and it's included in the GPG4Win
builds. Using that, just select your key, hit export, choose a
name for your exported key and you're done.

Sure, or you can add UID's to a key.
