I recently got a new computer and forgot to export my private key. I still have my public one. Is there any way to retrieve my private key? I still have the passphrase for it. I have no access to an account I need without that private key. Please help!

welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.
This KB-article explains what to do if you forgot your password or lost access to your secret key.
Do you have a backup of your old computer or still access to it? There is no other way to retrieve the secret key if you had not transferred or backed it up to a thumb drive earlier.
All the best,
