Exporting a List of Root CA Certificates

This section provides a tutorial example on how to export a list of trusted root CA certificates with the certificates console on a Windows system.

The first thing I want to do with the certificates console created from the previous tutorial is to export a list of trusted CA certificates to a text file.

1. Click "Start > All Programs > Administrative Tools > MyCertificatesConsole.msc". "MyCertificatesConsole" window shows up.

2. Open "Certificates (Local Computer) > Trusted Root Certification Authorities > Certificates" in the Console Root tree. A list of all certificates in "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store shows up. There are more than 65 certificates in the list:

Trusted Root CA Certificates on Windows
Trusted Root CA Certificates on Windows

3. Click "Export List" from the "Action" menu. The "Export List" dialog box shows up.

4. Select "\Herong" as the folder and enter "Trusted_Certificate_List.txt" as the file name.

5. Click "Save" button. A list of all trusted CA certificates is saved in \herong\Trusted_Certificate_List.txt now. as the file name.
