Hello! I need to do the exact same thing, and I'm not familiar with terminal. Can you help? I have skype, and team viewer if you want to take control of my mac. Thanks

I would like to move my entire installation from my mac applications folder to a thumb drive and use the program from there. I don't know terminal.

    Hi Joe,

    moving all applications from the GPG Suite doesn't make too much sense. Also not all components from the GPG Suite are apps thus you will not find them in your programs folder.

    So what might make sense depending on your thread level, is to move your keyring. But if you are a "normal" user, keeping your keys on your desktop machine should be fine.

    We are already working on a UI solution to move your keyring and have a ticket for this problem:
