  2. Click on the gear wheel and then select Account.
  3. Select Key ring from the options.
  4. Click on Create new key.
  5. Assign a name and a password for the key. Enter this information in the appropriate fields. If necessary, place a check mark in the check box Use this key as default key to define a new default key.
  6. Then click on Save & next.
  7. Download the key file by clicking on Download now and save it in a secure location.
