I want to press just one button on my browser (or desktop) and have it bring up the "new note" page on so I could quickly jot down ideas.

How can I do that?

That's a good temp solution, but what I'm looking for is a quick way to bring up a place to write a long note. Thanks for this. – Andrew Warner Jun 4 '11 at 0:28

If Evernote is running (even in the background), you can use the global hotkey/shortcut Ctrl + Alt + N to switch to Evernote and start a new Note. This works even when on browser is the active window.

OK, this is not just one button, but 3 buttons, but you can setup a new global hotkey as well (setup a one-button global hotkey in Windows)

See the shortcuts support page for more info.
