To be upfront, Im no further on, I just cant follow the great advice shown
here.  The only thing I can do is to provide a screenshot and then follow
exactly an A), B), C) format no further advice until a return screenshot has
proven that Ive understood and executed that step?  So here is the first
screenshot of my GnuPGP UI ( if I should use an easier UI please advise
where I can get it but this one seems ok )?   Oh, re the word file it was a
misprint, wordpad was used, But now I cant seem to reproduce my own public
key in wordpad?
