How to open file with GPG extension?

GPG file description

A .GPG file is a security key file that is created by the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG / GPG) free encryption software program. The software can be used to encrypt, decrypt, and authenticate the sensitive data, wherein the encryption is compatible with the OpenPGP (RFC4880) standard. The GPG file is similar to Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) encryption and the GPG operations are implemented using the gpg command-line options. Further, the GPG encrypted files are saved under the gnugpg directory with the file names as secring.gpg for saving the secret key files, the pubring.gpg for saving the public keys, and the trustdb.gpg for saving the database of trusted keys.
