In order to open an existing KeyStore, click on
Menu File >
Open > Open KeyStore or use the default keyboard shortcut

order to select the desired KeyStore file. The supported file extensions have the following

After selecting the KeyStore file, the KeyStore password is required.
Most recently used KeyStores can be found using
Menu File > Open Recent File. A
simple click on the desired KeyStore in the menu, will open the KeyStore
in a new tab. The KeyStore's password is required only in the "Persist
only KeyStore file name" mode. If the KeyStore has been already opened,
the KeyStore's tab will be activated.
