How can a slightly computer averse but intelligent person learn for free how to digitally sign and time stamp essays for free before self publishing?
By "computer averse" I mean computer averse/phobic/mediocre/clueless/attention-deficit.
I have got to page 28 in a free book (https://files.gpg4win.org/doc/gpg4win-compendium-en.pdf). It's roughly at the right level for me, although the difficulty seems to vary wildly with parts seeming to explain the obvious repeatedly (I don't need to the analogies to a physical safe, for example, and the lengthy descriptions of safes and keys, are a great waste of my time).
Other parts, even of the 'for novices' section, were far too dry and technical for me ("In the case of Gpg4win or other e-mail encryption programs, this concept is found in almost mirror-like fashion in S/MIME. Added to this is OpenPGP, another concept that only works this way on the Internet. S/MIME and OpenPGP have the same task: the encryption and signing of data. Both use the already familiar public key method. While there are some important differences, in the end, none of these standards offer any general advantage over another. For this reason you can use Gpg4win to use both methods." lies in wait in the 'for the novice' section. "S/MIME" and "OpenPGP" are used before having been defined, explained, or otherwise properly introduced).
It's also full of typos (See the 'Legend' on page 4, where to name just one of the many errors, 'font' is spelt 'fond').
I am wondering whether I am going about this in the right way. I don't find Windows 10 easy to find my way around, but it's what I've got installed on my computer, so I'm not even sure I shouldn't be using the command line instead.
So my question here is: what site if any would welcome this or a suitably modified version of this question?
