How to save everything for backup and reinstall

Hi All !

If someone has probably a pointer to how to save all my settings and the keys/files, so that I can remove Kleopatra ??

Thanks anyway.

It looks like, that the shell extension disables windows
compression attribute. So, to verify this, I habe to completely
remove everything related to Kleopatra. I dont use it each
day, but have never seen, that this feature is present, but

Anyway from the result, my experience over the past
20 years with shell extensions is, dont use them. All
are buggy. I just have igenored my own experience :wink:

Best regards,


Export your public and private keys and save the configuration files found here:


When reinstalling, simply copy the config files back and import all of your keys.
