Just like Samir said, you use gnupg directly if you want to use the
command line. Skip Kleopatra.

Alt. 1 search on google for "man gnupg" or "man gnupg2" depending on
which version you want to use. Most likely it won't matter to you if
you use gpg v.1 or v.2, but you have to decide which one you want to
use, when in doubt just use gpg2 it has more features. This search
will give you a lot of details about all the different commands and
options you can use. In Windows directories are like this:
c:\example\directory\ in Linux it can be ~/.example/directory/, just
translate it into windows style.

Alt. 2 in the command line just type gpg /? or gpg2 /? for shorter
list of commands you can use.
(I don't remember if /? or -? is used in gpg for Windows, I'm using a
Linux computer right now and can't check. In Linux you just type "man
gpg2" or "gpg2 -?" to get more info.
