Sorry. I found the default-recipient parameter in the ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
file. However, when I set:
No such user ID.
I have not uploaded my newly created key information to a keyserver, Is
that a requirement?

I am new to pgp and would like to understand the minimum flags that I
should be using for my encryption/decryption needs. I just want to encrypt
files for decryption by one other person. We have exchanged public keys.
I have read in several places that I can run:
gpg -e filename
However I receive:
You did not specify a user ID. (you may use "-r")
Enter the user ID. End with an empty line:
1. Can I set default behavior to not have to specify a user ID?
2. What other flags should be used per best practices?
Any guidance is greatly appreciated,
