Why can I look up my keys from my laptop but not from my desktop?

    Hi olopezb,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    I am not sure I fully understand the question, but you maybe looking at a situation where your secret key only resides on one of your two macs. This KB-article explains how to backup 1. a single key 2. all your keys or 3. your entire .gnupg folder.

    That would allow you to transfer your secret key to your second mac.

    Let me know if you have more questions or need further assistance after going through that KB.

    All the best,
