Encryption/Decryption is not a goal itself, it’s a way to achieve goal -- safety for sensitive data.
There are couple common scenarios:
In all these scenarios you also need to make sure sensitive information will not remain in un-encrypted state.
Now let’s see what it takes to achieve this using PGP Tool versus Average PGP software (LESS actions -- better)
(presuming you've already encrypted at least one file from the same folder)
The "magic" happens because PGP Tool application remembered:

Question: Why I might need to use this PGP Tool?
Answer: It will help you to make sure that sensitive data like your bank accounts, passwords and/or confidential documents will be available only to the designated people.
You encrypt this information and then you can safely store it locally, in the cloud or send via email.
Even if you save it to the USB Flash drive and leave it in the center of the citi no one except authorized people will be able to read this data.
Question: How it works?
Answer: On a high-level it works like this:
Question: What is OpenPGP ?
Answer: PGP stands for Pretty Good Privacy. Prefix "Open" means that this is open standard, many applications support it.
OpenPGP software uses a combination of strong public-key and symmetric cryptography to provide security services for electronic communications and data storage. These services include confidentiality, key management, authentication, and digital signatures.

This project is not just a Free software it’s also an Open Source project! You can contribute!
Which effectively means that there are number of ways to get what you want:
Hi there! I'm creator and maintainer of this project. I hope it helps you as much as it helps me to minimize routine operations and increase data security when working with PGP encrypted files.
If you enjoy this program and want to appreciate it - you can always Buy me a coffee
Couple words about me:
I'm passionate and enthusiastic about software development. Primarily because I love when technology enables people to focus on creative work rather than on routine steps.
Both my work and hobby are related to software development. I worked as a C++ and C# developer. I've succeeded as a Java Developer, Team Leader and a Project Manager.
I believe that the only way to predict you future is to build it!
