Which of our tools is giving you problems?

I am using your latest version of GPG suite which I downloaded today 12 Aug 2018

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

I really thought this would be easy to find but it seems very hard.

I just want my PUBLIC PGP key, I was using GPG suite a few months ago and I did find my public key and copied and pasted it successfully, but I've forgotten how I got there and since then I had to reinstall a new hard drive on my computer and lost everything so I have created a new GPG identity.

I need to be able to see my public key, in the format below, so I can copy and paste it and post it on a website to speak to people privately... I am NOT e-mailing them btw. This is what I need to see

I need to find this info (but for my own key)
