    Hi Nikhil,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform.

    GPG Suite currently supports macOS, the mac operating system, only.

    I would suggest to get in touch with the gnupg users mailling list.

    But if you do not have your password stored in some password manager or backup, chances are, you lost access to your secret key and will have to revoke it and create a new key.

    All the best,
