How can I export the private keys from addresses created and used by Electrum?

Looking at the Electrum.org website I see they have a "community" page.
http://electrum.org/community.html

Clicking that link, I see the following:

You can export your private keys using the 'addresses' command:

Code:
$ ./electrum addresses -ak

There are two options in this example:

    option -a means: 'list all addresses'. if you don't use it, change addresses are not listed.
    option -k means: display the private keys

If your wallet is not encrypted, you can take a look inside the electrum.dat. There you find all the priv keys.

Unfortunately, this will only give you the imported keys (if any), not keys created by Electrum, because these are not stored in any file (they are dynamically derived from the seed.)

Only "electrum -oak addresses" will show them. However, as far as I know the current official Windows version doesn't support it. You may want to double-check on the Electrum thread or the #electrum IRC channel for the latest status on this.

Or if you still have access to one of my old builds (which are no longer supported but they will work fine), you can just hold down the SHIFT key while starting electrum and type the above command in the resulting console window.

PS: sacko, thanks for your kind words on the other thread Wink
